We Will Not Be Erased: A Banned Books Event

October 4, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT



This year has seen a significant rise in the number of books facing challenges and bans, with a notable focus on works authored by Black and LGBTQ+ writers, as reported by PEN America. Adding to these challenges, North Carolina is contending with increased censorship and limitations on student self-expression through the implementation of Senate Bill 49.

Together, let’s champion the freedom to read, learn, and grow through diverse voices and perspectives.

Celebrate Banned Books Week with the ACLU of North Carolina and Equality NC.
