Pushing Back Against the Banning of Books
September 24 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDTFree
Access to books and ideas are at the center of the cultural and political war raging in the United States, and libraries and schools have become battlegrounds. The East Side Freedom Library intends to be a space where ideas can be freely discussed and where books from diverse cultural and ideological perspectives are available. We invite you to join us for our observance of “Banned Books Week.”
ESFL invites you to join us on Saturday, September 24, at 1pm CT, either by Zoom or on our front lawn. We will hear from a panel of writers, teachers, and librarians. We also invite you to volunteer to read a paragraph from a book written by any of these authors whose work has been under threat of censure
