As we were wandering about the interwebs this morning, we came across a pretty amazing recording from Banned Books Week. Barbara Jones, who heads up ALA’s Office of Intellectual Freedom, joined Joan Bertin, executive director of the National Coalition Against Censorship; Acacia O’Connor, coordinator of the Kids’ Right to Read Project; and Tony Diaz, author and founder of Libro Traficante, for KPFA‘s The Morning Mix: Project Censored.
CBLDF is a sponsor of Banned Books Week and the Kids’ Right to Read Project, and CBLDF frequently partners with KRRP, NCAC, and ALA on censorship issues. In the recording, Jones, Bertin, O’Connor, and Diaz discuss banned books, and Diaz further provides an update on the status of the Mexican American Studies program in Tucson.
