Banned Books Week Special on the Project Censored Show on Pacifica’s Free Speech Radio. Join hosts Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips in conversation with Barbara Jones, Director of the Office for Intellectual Freedom and the Executive Director of the Freedom to Read Foundation of the American Library Association about this year’s BBW; then hear from students on the front lines of banned books from Hadley Junior High School and Lane Tech to discuss the banning of On the Perks of Being a Wallflower and the 451 club; the BBW special continues with Michael O’Neil of the National Coalition Against Censorship and concludes with Charles Brownstein, executive director of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. We hope you join us and spread the word as books (as well as news stories) really ARE banned in the US of A! Tune in 94.1 FM in Berkeley, CA, online at http://kpfa.org/ each Friday morning 8-9 Pacific time.
