In recognition of Banned Books Week 2023, PEN America returns to SFPL to host the Freedom to Read Student Summit for high school students!

This unique day of thematic workshops and activities led by PEN America student leaders and staff will help equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to combat book banning and educational censorship to preserve the freedoms to read and learn in their schools, libraries, and communities across the region and beyond! Returning students from the March 2023 program are welcome. Trainings have been updated with new data and insights from PEN America’s latest book bans report, “Banned in the USA: State Laws Supercharge Book Suppression in Schools”.

This event is open to students in any level of high school and is free to attend. Lunch will be provided. Capacity is limited so register as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact institute@pen.org.
