Free to Read Event in San Francisco
You're invited to join Novelly for an ✨IRL✨ intergenerational conversation on the current fight for artistic and creative freedom.
In the past year, more than 2,500 books were subject to challenges and bans in the United States (PBS).
As parents, policymakers, teachers and librarians battle it out, how can we better listen to youth voices? How do students feel about censorship in the classroom and the decline of creative writing, visual arts, and performing arts opportunities in education?
On Monday, July 17th, join Novelly for an intergenerational conversation about how we can not only protect our freedom to read diverse literature but also prioritize creative expression for people of all ages.
Our youth speakers will be Harnoor Nagra, a graduating senior at Fremont High School, an alum of Novelly’s SPEAK program and an incoming freshman at Reed College, and Caroline De La Cruz, an alum of Novelly’s SPEAK program and a rising sophomore at San Francisco University High School.
This event is free to attend and open to the public.
