Banned Books and The Discomfort They Bring
Manage episode 307994938 series 2947388
Book banning is often done with the intention of “protecting children”. But who decides what is or isn’t okay? And are we doing children and their families a disservice when we do? We are joined by Pat Scales, expert on censorship and a retired librarian, and Alex Gino, award-winning author of several banned books to discuss why books are challenged, the effects bans have, and on the line between fear and intellectual freedom.
