EXTERNAL: Giller Power Panel: Banned Books – Censorship and the Erasure of History and Experience
The Giller Power Panels pull together creatives with a moderator each month to discuss the intersection of literature and other cultural and political expressions.
Banning books has again become a very real and ubiquitous menace to democracy. The panel will discuss the experience of having books banned or challenged and how to combat this threat to our freedom.
Moderated by Peter Midgley, the panelists include: Matt Abbott, Arlene Perly Rae, Raziel Reid and David Robertson.
The panel will take place over Zoom on Tuesday, April 25, at 7 p.m. ET (that’s 4 p.m. here in Whistler!).
