Banned-Books Week

This week’s show coincides with Banned-Books-Week, and Mickey spends the hour with five guests, representing a variety of perspectives, but all in agreement on the need to defend peoples’ right to read. The topics of discussion include the origin of Banned-Books-Week, the ongoing attempts to restrict what students may read in school, and the continuing importance of comic books and graphic novels in today’s media world.

Abena Hutchful is with the Youth Free Expression Program at the National Coalition Against Censorship. Charles Brownstein is Executive Director of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. James LaRue directs the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom. Peter Glanting and Adam Bessie are cartoonists and co-creators of Trump Universe, a chapter in Project Censored’s just-released Censored 2018 book.
