OMG, you can’t write that! Banned Books Online Event

September 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST

Free

Join Humanist Society Scotland for an online evening of discussion to mark Banned Books Week 2022. In light of the recent horrific attack on Salman Rushdie and the increase in book banning in schools in the US, we wanted to create an event that highlights religious censorship of books. OMG, you can’t write that! Books, Censorship, and Religion

Join us online on Thursday 22nd September, 7:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. (British Summer Time)

The panel discussion will be hosted by our CEO Fraser Sutherland and will include playwright and Royal Lyceum artistic director David Greig, cartoonist and Executive Director of Cartoonists Rights Network International Terry Anderson, Emma Wadsworth-Jones of Humanists International and formerly of PEN International, and Professor Emerita of Royal Conservatoire Scotland, theatre director, and co-chair of Humanist Society Scotland Maggie Kinloch. The panel discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A.
