Come join us when we discuss the recent book bans—their impact, and what we can do to give students access to books with LGBTQ+ themes. We’ll also be viewing & discussing a presentation by Martha Hickson—a school librarian who has been at the forefront in the battle to keep books available. Martha Hickson has been a high school librarian since 2005. Her work has been featured in School Library Journal, Booklist, KnowledgeQuest, the American Library Association Intellectual Freedom Blog, NJEA Review, and School Librarian's Workshop. She has received multiple national awards.
