Author Molly Harper, a Western Kentucky University graduate who lives in Paducah, will be at Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday in Building F conference room at the main campus at 1845 Loop Ave.

Harper will talk about the dangers of censorship and the freedom to read to commemorate Banned Book Week, which is Sept. 26 through Oct. 1. The discussion will be part of SKYCTC Sociology Department Coordinator Bertena Varney's mass media class, but the public is invited. Admission is free.

Harper will sign copies of her book provided for sale by Barnes amp; Noble Booksellers.

"I met her at a book signing and I fell in love with her. She describes herself as snarky. She's hilarious. I love every one of her series," Varney said. "Some of them are about vampires. Some of them are about ghosts. Some of them are about Kentucky romance. They're all based in Kentucky. They're really funny. They're not scary."
