The Educational Foundations program in the College of Education and Community Innovation will host its 6th annual Film and Speaker Series on October 4, 2023.

The expert panel includes Jonathan Friedman, Ph.D., Executive director for PEN America; Deborah Mikula, the Michigan Library Association Executive Director; and Karsonya Wise Whitehead, Ph.D., Executive Director for the Karson Institute for Race, Peace & Social Justice. The event will examine the increase of book banning in public schools and libraries locally and across the United States.

The audience will be encouraged to ask questions of the panelists and engage in a constructive and engaging discussion about this pressing issue.
