Banning books in schools: what does it mean for students? | Online Event

FREE EVENT from the Centre for Free Expression (CFE)
Thursday, November 9, 2023, 4 p.m. EDT
Zoom link:

As schools face demands to remove books from their libraries and curriculum resources, few consider students’ views. Join a panel of students who look at recent bans — what it means for them, why it’s happening, and what schools, students, and the community should do.
