Library professionals will discuss the history and legal aspects of book banning, national trends and legislation leading up to Banned Books Week, as well as the experiences of different institutions such as academic, public, school, and state libraries in Maine. Be ready to engage! The salon aims to provide a platform for personal experiences with censorship and encourage attendees to share their thoughts on the way forward. All are welcome.
