Lit: where there’s smoke there’s fire

Join the Williams Project for an interactive event at The Grocery Studios. We invite you to engage in an evening giving voice to banned texts.

Saturday August 19, 2023
6:00 – 9:00pm

During the first half of the 2022-23 school year PEN America’s Index of School Book Bans lists 1,477 instances of individual books banned, affecting 874 unique titles, an increase of 28 percent compared to the prior six months, January – June 2022. We are witnessing a dangerous time in censorship.

Do you have a favorite piece of literature that was or is currently banned? Join us for an evening of community where we will sip, savor some bites and breathe life into some forbidden texts.

The WIlliams Project will have some pieces on site for folks to engage with but we encourage you to bring what speaks to you as an offering for the evening.
