Join your Sinclair Librarians for monthly discussions around censorship and book banning. Each month, we will gather to discuss either a current issue surrounding censorship or a specific banned or challenged book. Please note, this is a participatory event and you will be expected to read the book before we meet. Discussion questions and supplemental material will be sent to all who register before the event.

In this third session, we will discuss the memoir Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic. Limited copies of the book are available in the Ohio Digital Library and the Sinclair Library:

Fun Home is a coming of age and coming out story in graphic novel form. Alison Bechdel explores her complex relationship with her closeted father as she begins to understand her own sexuality.
