Uncensored Voices: Celebrating Literary Freedom

Since 1982, more than 11,000 books have been challenged in schools and libraries. In response, the American Library Association holds a National Banned Books Week each year. On Saturday, in recognition of the week and in conjunction with the Las Vegas Valley Book festival, the ACLU is holding "Uncensored Voices," an interactive discussion with experts on literary censorship in the US and on the internet.
