What’s the difference between a challenged and a banned book – and more to the point, why are they dominating our headlines? Is there any precedent for it? Above all, what can Friends do to help their libraries navigate this climate?
MALF’s summer webinar, "Living in Challenging Times: Book Banning Then and Now" will tackle these timely questions. Join Sheila DeChantal (president, Friends of the Brainerd Public Library) and Laurel Hall (branch manager, Brainerd Public Library) over the lunch hour on Tuesday, June 21 for this informative, nonpartisan stroll through the long history of banned books.
We’ll follow the trend right up to the present day. Sheila and Laurel will discuss proactive and reactive measures that Friends can take to support their library in the face of a book challenge.
