Fight back against book bans by learning the history of book bans, why the freedom to read matters, and what strategies you can take to combat censorship locally and nationally.

“Book bans and challenges have increased exponentially in the past several years, led by conservative groups looking to take LGBTQ books, BIPOC stories, and sex education books out of school and public libraries. Book Riot has been a leader in the fight against this wave of book bans, and in this book, we outline how you can help. These tips apply to all book lovers, from educators and librarians to book club members to readers of all stripes.

“If you take one thing from this book, let it be this: don’t just stop at reading or buying banned books! How To Fight Book Bans & Censorship provides a framework for getting involved so that everyone can have access to the books they want to read. It’s easy to get discouraged, but we need your voice to help defend intellectual freedom and the First Amendment, and this book offers a starting point to join the conversation.

“A vital resource for educators and librarians, and for communities who have had enough extremism and want the context and the tools to defend freedom of speech in our schools and libraries.” — Alex London, author of over 25 books for children, teens, and adults”
