Have you read a book by Ernest Hemingway or F. Scott Fitzgerald lately? Did you know that these authors plus many other famous writers have had their works banned or censored in numbers of communities around the country over the years? Some were even banned from the mails by the United States Post Office.
In celebration of National Banned Book Week (September 24 to 30) the Spellman Museum of Stamps & Postal History has curated a special exhibit featuring banned authors and playwrights who have been honored on both U.S. and foreign stamps plus special envelopes. Authors include T.S. Eliot, Jack London, E.B. White, James Joyce, J.R. Rowling, Malcolm X, John Steinbeck and Harriet Beecher Stow. Information about censorship done by the Post Office is also part of the display.

Some people say they are old fashioned Instagrams. People once sent them by the thousands while on vacations to make friends jealous. They are postcards and the public is invited to learn more about their history and the history of the town of Wellesley. Co-sponsored with the Wellesley Historical Society, Alden Ludlow, archivist with the Wellesley Historical Society, will give an illustrated lecture of historical postcards featuring the Town of Wellesley. His talk will explore the historical development of postcards by showing those that highlight Wellesley’s buildings, public spaces, and activities. In addition, he will examine early postcard history and how postcards were produced and published. The presentation is derived from the current Wellesley Historical Society exhibit, "Greetings from Wellesley! Our Town in Photo Postcards.”
