“Never Forget” — Children’s Literature and Historical Revisionism in the Philippines

September 20 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

Free

This Banned Books Week event offers a Philippine perspective on children’s literature and censorship.

In commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law in the Philippines, a panel of Filipino authors and book distributors will discuss the role of children’s literature in documenting the truths about the Marcos dictatorship, especially in an environment that enables the spread of disinformation and inhibits protest and free speech. The panelists will also offer their thoughts on how readers, educators, and activists in the United States can support the work of Filipinos in the homeland who are combating historical revisionism and state oppression.

The event is open to the public, but Zoom registration is required. Click here to register.
