Food for Thought: Book Censorship

Books. We never thought books would be controversial, but there’s a lot about 2023 that we didn’t expect to stir controversy.  Voices resonate from the state, regions, school boards, and parents throughout Texas about student access to literature. What’s right? What’s wrong? What helps learning? What hinders learning? How do you teach when you’re unsure of what can be used in your classroom? How can educators be confident in the texts they are using for instruction? How do libraries inspire a love of reading amidst the uncertainty?

Join the LBJ Library and Wendy Woodland, Director of Advocacy & Communications for the Texas Library Association, for a catered dinner and riveting discussion on the current status and implications of book censorship in the public school environment. We’ll ensure that participants have the opportunity to ask questions and seek clarifications about book censorship.

This event will be held in-person at the LBJ Library on November 15, 2023 from 6:30pm-8:00pm. Food for Thought participants will earn 1.5 CEU hours for their attendance; a CPE certificate will be available upon the end of the program.

Registration for this event is $15.00.

Registration closes at 10:00pm CST on Wednesday, November 8, 2023.
