Banned Books Week 2012: Naked Girls Reading | SF

Naked Girls Reading San Francisco is simply a group of women who read literature naked to a doting audience.

On October 2, we will be celebrating our right to read by selecting banned, censored and burned books.

I suppose someone needs to compete with the Naked Guys on Castro.  All they do is sit around, exercising their free speech by simply being naked.  The “Naked Girls” actually celebrate free speech by reading excerpts from banned books.

So jump on the banned-wagon and learn more about banned books (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun).
