Banned Books Week Podcast of Chris Crutcher

Banned Books Week Podcast of Chris Crutcher

2009.04.30 Chris Crutcher

As part of Banned Books Week, we are replaying a podcast of a visit that Chris Crutcher made to the Davenport Public Library about a year and a half ago as part of “Super Author Week.”  Listen to what Chris has to say about “Fostering Free Speech and Open Discourse.”  After listening to this podcast, be sure to stop by your local library and pick up one of Chris’ books and let us know what you think of his writings and whether they deserved to be banned and why?  We look forward to hearing what you have to say!

For more information about Banned Books Week visit www.ala.org/bbooks and be sure to visit your Davenport Public Library and check out some BANNED BOOKS!
