Join us for this in-person event in our Manchester, Vermont store.

Lt. Governor David Zuckerman will visit our Manchester store to host readings from banned books. Special guests will join the Lt. Governor to discuss with the audience the importance of free speech, inclusion, democracy, and open dialogue.

Around the country, we have seen the proliferation of book challenges and bans by school districts and local governments. These bans often target books that feature LGBTQ+ characters; talk about gender and sexuality; highlight racial disparities; or talk about difficult issues such as substance abuse and cases of police violence. Students, teachers, and curious minds should be able to access materials that spark critical thinking, cover difficult topics, and appeal to diverse interests without fear of government interference.
