Books, libraries, librarians, and writers are subject to attacks—again. Recent bans of books across the United States targeting Black history, the Holocaust, and LGBTQ themes have dominated the news. But book censorship has a longer history. “Banned! A History of Censorship” explores this history, along with practices of censorship, the methods to control and ban books and ideas, the resilience of censored works, and attempts to push back.
This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
