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, film, or resource. Please note, this is a participatory event and you will be expected to read the book/article or review the resource before we meet.

In this mini session, we will meet to discuss the following opinion piece: Reading While Incarcerated Saved Me. So Why Are Prisons Banning Books? at https://www.nytimes.com/2022/08/17/opinion/banned-books-prison.html
