PEN America On
I’m heading to Florida for this. We all need to be speaking out against book banning, censorship, erasure, and eliminationism. https://twitter.com/splcenter/status/1637514283952005122
Let Florida Read!
Join us Tuesday in Tally as we celebrate our constitutional right to read alongside amazing authors, students, educators of @FloridaMediaEd, @PENamerica, @diversebooks, @splcenter, @DemocracyFwd, & @EveryLibrary.
Literature knows no frontiers. Yet books today are under profound attack. I'm joining @PENAmerica in the fight to defend the freedom to read. Sign and share this petition to show your support for diverse literature and writers across the country. https://bit.ly/33MOt24?source=twitter&
