Freedom to Read OPEN MIC

February 21 to January 1, 2018

Celebrate freedom of expression by reading a five-minute excerpt from your own work OR from a banned or censored book. Need ideas? We'll post them here! Every year, books in Canada are challenged for a variety of reasons. For a list of challenged books, visit http://www.freedomtoread.ca/challenged-works/ Hosted by Janice Wililams. Freedom to Read Week is an annual event that encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
