Banned Books Week 2019: Freedom to Read
Join Charis Books and Reforming Arts, in partnership with PEN America, as we discuss some of the contemporary challenges to free speech and reading that we all face. The evening will have a special emphasis on the challenges to free speech and free reading that people incarcerated in Georgia and around the United States face. Learn more about how you can support arts organizations like Reforming Arts and PEN America and also how you can help fight against book banning in schools and prisons. We will highlight some of the books recently banned in the United States and talk about why LGBTQIA+ content is especially in danger of censorship in schools and in prisons.
The event is free and open to the public with a $5 suggested donation.
