This event will not be recorded.
The Salon Series was made possible by generous contributions from Fogler Library donors and Honors College co-sponsorship.
Join Maine Association of School Libraries VP Beth Andersen, Maine Library Association President Sonya Durney, Maine State Librarian Lori Fisher, and Bangor Public Library Director Ben Treat for a salon bringing together various perspectives on censorship. 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.
The University of Maine is an equal opportunity/affirmative action institution.
