Freedom to Read: Addressing the Banned Books Campaign Panel Discussion

March 30 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

In light of current legislative efforts to ban books (and other legislative efforts to limit teachers’ abilities to teach concepts of anti-racism, inclusion, and social justice) we think it’s important to have an open discussion around what we want our students to learn. We are delighted to have on our panel Lorena Germán, an educator focused on antiracist and anti-bias work in education, and the founder of the groups #DisruptTexts and Multicultural Classroom. She is the author of The Anti Racist Teacher: Reading instruction workbook, and Textured Teaching: A framework for culturally sustaining practices. Newton South librarian Margaret Schoen and English department chair Brian Baron will also be on the panel. Students are welcome too!
