Who’s Afraid of Childhood? (In-Person)

Book bans are on the rise. Last year, the American Library Association tracked 729 attempts to remove library, school, and university materials, involving 1,597 titles—double the number in 2019. Shedding light on the most recent spate of censorship, “Who’s Afraid of Childhood?” explores books set in childhood to highlight denial and resistance to depicting its realities.

The event ends with a TBD musical performance and sing-along. Stay tuned!

Speakers include: Anastasia Higginbotham, Michelle Tea & Drag Story Hour, LaToya Council, & more!

Location: St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, 157 Montague Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201 |
