About this event

Tired of extremists banning books? Let’s do something about it. Join Stella Parton (who recently spoke out against attacks on her sister Dolly’s Imagination Library), authors of some of the most banned books in the country, and families fighting for the freedom to learn for a one-of-a-kind virtual event! It’s a Read-In! While you watch, post a photo of yourself with your favorite banned book using the hashtag #BannedBookChallenge (we might even show some of the best during the event!).

Come for Stella and the books — and stay for specific ways to take action and get involved. You don’t want to miss this! Featured authors include Brad Meltzer, author of I Am Rosa Parks and I Am Martin Luther King, Jr.; Leslea Newman, author of Heather Has Two Mommies; Megan Madison and Jessica Ralli, authors of Our Skin, I.W. Gregorio, author of None of the Above, and Nikki Grimes, author of Ordinary Hazards.

Our amazing event partners include Women’s March, PEN America, We Need Diverse Books, and dozens of parent groups fighting book bans in their local communities.
