Whether your literary tastes skew more toward the risqué or you're a staunch First Amendment supporter, Bookmans on Ina Road has a club for you. The store's Banned Book Club will bring people together to read and discuss books that were banned in the past for one reason or another.

The first six months of the club will feature The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie in January, A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess in February, Stolen Children by Peg Kehret in March, One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest by Ken Kesey in April, In Cold Blood by Truman Capote in May, and Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs in June.

The Banned Book Club kicks off on Sunday, Jan. 18 at 5:30 p.m. and will continue on the third Sunday of each month at that same time. To join the free book club, e-mail emmem@bookmans.com.
