Community Conversation: The Impact of Banned Books on Society


We invite you to a Community Conversation around the The Impact of Banned Books on Society on Tuesday, October 10th, from 12:00 -1:00 pm ET. 

Join us to discuss how banned books have shaped our society. Explore the power of literature to challenge norms and promote social change during Banned Books Week.

Banned books are not just stories; they serve as agents of change, igniting conversations and inspiring progress. During Banned Books Week, let's explore how these once-restricted narratives have questioned societal norms, broken down barriers, and illuminated the path toward a more inclusive and enlightened world. Together, we'll celebrate the resilience of literature in amplifying underrepresented voices, advocating for change, and fostering unity within our communities.

This is a time for conversation – to share feelings, raise concerns, and talk together as a school community. To aid the conversation, space will be limited. (We know it's coming up soon, so if you miss it, don't fear!  If there is a lot of interest in this topic, we can hold another session soon.)

About the format. With these smaller Community Conversations, our hope is to explore restorative dialogue and build community, creating a space where we are all teachers and learners. We will draw heavily on practices from intergroup dialogue and restorative justice.
