Description: 

Eight out of the Top Ten Books challenged in 2014 had themes of diversity and race. What is it about these stories that people want them removed from libraries? Intellectual freedom is being stifled because multiple viewpoints aren't represented. Join us to hear perspectives about censorship from authors who write with diverse voices. This will be a moderated Q&A panel with time for audience questions.
