This talk digs into the current landscape of censorship, including some of the organizations behind the movement and the major targets of the book banners. This will include a look at the kinds of books being challenged and banned, while also encouraging writers to keep sharing their stories loudly and proudly.

In-person attendees can check out books from the pop-up banned books library!

Learn more about banned and challenged books as well as Kelly Jensen’s work on our Banned and Challenged Books resource guide.
