No Right to Exist? The Rainbow and Other Books That Shocked

About

Thursday 27 August - Thursday 31 March 2016 (Closed Mondays)

For centuries, books have been banned, suppressed or censored. What causes such offence? In this exhibition, beginning with Lawrence's 'The Rainbow' now in its centenary year, we look at what led many now well-known novels to be suppressed by the authorities. How do we view these works in today's social climate, are we still offended by their content? Have your say via Twitter @DHLHeritage #NoRightToExist

Venue: The Rainbow Gallery, inside D.H. Lawrence Heritage Centre

Admission: Normal Admission Charges Apply. A single ticket to exhibition can be bought or a joint one for this site & the Birthplace Museum
