DESCRIPTION:
download PDF (557.9 kibibytes) Legislative censorship in America is on the rise and most of this is driven by religious pressure. Across the country, books are being removed from school and public libraries by government officials at an unprecedented rate.

What does this mean for America and how is this wave of censorship impacting authors and editors personally as well as professionally?

This is a powerful conversation introduced by Every Library Executive Director John Chrastka, that looks at both the personal, political, and educational impacts of book banning and censorship, and reinforced how important it is for young people to have access to books that both reflect their experiences and help them understand the experiences of other people.

The discussion was moderated by Dr. Tasslyn Magnusson and the panelists were:

• Alex Gino

• Ashley Hope Pérez

• I.W. Gregorio (Ilene Wong)

• Andrew Karre

• Mark Oshiro

• Robin Stevenson
