ALA Annual Conference 2023

“There’s Nothing American About Banning Books:” Author Discussion on Fighting Book Bans at #alaac23 

Living in a state attempting to criminalize librarians (Arkansas, Act 372), I was eager to hear from authors and other attendees about their experiences with book banning. The wonderful array of panelists included Jerry Craft, Eliot Schrefer, Ashley Hope Pérez, Kyle Lukoff, and Samira Ahmed. The panel was moderated by Ellen Oh of We Need Diverse Books.
