When the American Library Association released their latest annual list of the most challenged books, a disturbing trend was noted: Books that increased the diversity of what is available to readers were more likely to be challenged. What is it about diversity that seems to encourage censors? Join CBLDF and library and education professionals Candice Mack (president, Young Adult Library Services Association), Erwin Magbanua (programming & special events coordinator, San Diego Public Library), Carla Riemer (librarian, Claremont Middle School, Oakland, California), Carol Tilley (associate professor, University of Illinois), and more for a discussion of why diverse books are challenged and how we can defend them. Moderated by CBLDF editorial director Betsy Gomez.
