Drag Queen Story Hour Reads Banned Books

September 26, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm EDT


Drag Queen Story Hour is just what it sounds like–drag queens read children’s books and lead creative activities promoting imagination and freedom of self-expression. In honor of Banned Books Week, we’ll be reading books from the ALA’s Top Ten Banned Books of 2017 list. Half of the books on the list were challenged for LGBTQ themes, so this story hour could not be more needed to ensure that these important stories are not silenced. Co-hosted by Drag Queen Story Hour and the National Coalition Against Censorship.

All families are welcome to join us at the Brooklyn Public Library!
