So to Speak podcast: Defending libraries with James LaRue

June 27, 2019

Community libraries have always been a target for would-be censors — and the past few months are no exception.

On today’s episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we explore past and present challenges to library content, and the unique role libraries play historically as bastions for free inquiry.

We are joined by James LaRue, an award-winning librarian and the former director of the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom and the Freedom to Read Foundation
