Bring It! Banned Books Read-In at WLA

Celebrate Banned Books at the 2013 WLA Conference in Green Bay!

What will you bring to the fight against censorship? Bring your voice and your favorite banned work of multicultural literature! Come and learn about Libros Milwaukee, an underground library centered on Mexican American expression, perspective, and history.
The underground library seeks to eliminate barriers of access and provide a welcoming environment where community members of all ages, races, and ethnicities can access Mexican American cultural works and Ethnic Studies literature.

The read-in will include the presentation of the 2013 WLA/WEMTA Intellectual Freedom Award to the Appleton Area School District and School Board. Join us in recognizing their dedication to upholding the principles of intellectual freedom.

Sponsored by the Ethnic and Multicultural Information Exchange Round Table (EMIERT) and the Intellectual Freedom Round Table (IFRT).
