Here’s what it looks like:

Host a Podcast

Invite experts to participate in an interactive discussion about the importance of freedom of expression over the phone or via video. Share the recorded podcast on all your social media channels. You can do some research on how to start a podcast to get the ball rolling!

Ask a writers’ association to provide one of its members to speak at your library, school, or bookstore during Freedom to Read Week. Encourage writers to talk about how important this freedom is to authors, and you can include clips of that recording in your podcast!

Live it up with a Livestream!

Go live on YouTube, Facebook or Instagram and read aloud from censored materials — you can ask your viewers to share their favourite challenged books or magazines in the live comments!
