Gregory, Kelly Mayfield, and Kristin Pekoll, contributors to the upcoming The Fight against Book Bans, in a roundtable conversation moderated by the book’s editor Shannon Oltmann. They will share their views regarding the recent flood of book challenges across the United States, reflect on first-hand accounts of facing book challenges, dig into the importance of intellectual freedom in the library, and offer guidance on responding to challenges in your communities.
