Day 2 — Banned Books in The Stacks with Alison Bechdel and Kelsey Reynolds

In light of the recent wave of book bannings taking place across The United of States, The Stacks is spending all week talking with people who are impacted by the bannings, ranging from students to educators, authors, and more, to help us think about what is at stake and what we can do.

On today’s episode we’re joined by Alison Bechdel author of the frequently banned graphic memoir Fun Home, and she shares why she hates having to talk about the banning of books. Then we get into a conversation about the comfort level of students with high school English teacher Kelsey Reynolds. We also hear from TV writer and actor Brandon Kyle Goodman, and actress and podcast host Becca Tobin, about their favorite banned books.
