The University of Texas Libraries and the Department of English at The University of Texas at Austin will be hosting a First Amendment panel discussion in recognition of Banned Books Week.
“Texas Banned Books: Questions and Answers” (TXBBQ&A) will be an interactive roundtable discussion about the real, relevant state of censorship in Texas. The conversation will center on Texas schools and values, books in prison, freedom of the press and the right to read.
