    Finally, book lovers get a chance to stick it to the man.

    As part of First Amendment Open Mic Night, patrons will be reading 5-minute excerpts from some of the world's most controversial books -- and you can still get in on the action.

    It's the literary equivalent of screaming at town halls.

    Just pick your book and bring your reading voice. Catch-22, Lolita, The Catcher in the Rye: If it's been banned or challenged, it's eligible for Saturday's reading.

    The literary demonstration is Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Skylight Books in Los Feliz.

    The store will have some titles on hand for participants. Interested readers can sign up via the store's website.
