During the past several years, there has been a steady increase in the number of books being banned by schools and libraries in different regions of the U.S. What themes do these books have in common? What is accomplished by preventing access to certain titles? Booksellers, teachers, librarians and advocacy groups agree that blanket bans are not an appropriate response to topics that some find controversial. Indeed, after a book has been banned, the demand for it seems to grow. This spring we'll read three such books and discuss the conflict between censorship and intellectual freedom. Classes included in the series: "Year of Wonders" by Geraldine Brooks-3/1 "The 1619 Project" by Nikole Hannah-Jones-3/29 "This Book is Gay" by Juno Dawson-5/3
Fee: $79.00
