Freedom to Write | Freedom to Read with Suzanne Nossel (Virtual)
On Oct 4th, Suzanne Nossel will join a conversation with Richard Dresser, American playwright and screenwriter, as part of the Big Tent USA “Under the Tent” Speaker Series. As part of Banned Book Week 2023, this talk will examine the current movement to ban books in public schools playing out across the United States. The conversation will underscore the impacts of increased censorship on authors and artists, as well as students and schools. With a lens to the past, Suzanne and Richard will discuss whether these threats to free expression are novel, as well as ways for individuals to use their voices in defending the freedom to read.
