Scrawl Season 5 Episode 2: (Radio Edit) October 2, 2012

Robert sits down with Heather Jagman, DePaul University’s Coordinator of Library Instruction, to talk about the importance of Banned Books Week.  Heather talks about her experience in grade school and not having a public library in her town and how that motivated her interest in library science.

 

We discuss book banning in public institutions such as schools and libraries, and Heather gives us some background on the origins of Banned Books Week.

 

Also, Robert gives us the Top 10 list of challenged books of 2011.
