The ACLU Talks Banned Books!
This year's Banned Books Week is from Sept. 22 - Sept. 28, but the fight for intellectual freedom takes place every day in every county in Virginia. To keep up the spirit of Banned Books Week, join the ACLU of Virginia at One More Page Books & More on Saturday, Sept. 28 to reflect on the freedom to read and take a stand against the government's attempt to stifle speech and control what we should read, think, and value.
The ACLU's attorney Nicole Tortoriello will be there to talk about government censorship, what it looks like in public schools and public libraries, and what you can do about it. Additionally, they will discuss efforts to ban books in prisons and jails in Virginia and how you can help expand access to books behind bars. Come have a chat with us and take home some swag!
