From Awareness to Book Bans
October 12, 2023
4:30 to 7:00
Presenter: Harry Furman, Esq.
Words matter. Books matter!
This seminar will consider how a classic like the story and diary of Anne Frank have been used in the past and is now under threat of censorship.
Used since the 1950's in theater and film, it is causing controversy today.
How can teachers address this while still teaching the lessons and truth of Anne Frank, and also another classroom standard, NIGHT by Elie Wiesel?
