Celebrate your freedom to read! Join us at Mead Public Library for a guided book discussion about banned books and intellectual freedom.
We are excited to have this program led by Dr. Joyce Latham, associate professor of Library & Information Studies at UW-Milwaukee. Read more about her and her expertise in intellectual freedom here.
The discussion will center around three books that highlight the common reasons people ban and challenge books across different age groups and viewpoints: Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, And Tango Makes Three by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell, and the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.
