Open/Close Menu Celebrate your right to read

Subverting the traditional book club format, a panel of special guests—chaired by CEO of Index on Censorship Jodie Ginsberg and including editor of Sex+ magazine Kim Loliya and novelist and playwright Courttia Newland—will go head-to-head, pitching their favourite banned book to the audience and opening up on the themes that saw them banned in the first place. This provocative and lively evening aims to challenge the notion of censorship through fresh and insightful engagement with work once thought too scandalous for the bookshelves.

This is a Banned Books Week event in partnership with the British Library, Booksellers Association, English PEN, Free Word, Hachette UK, Index on Censorship, Islington Council’s Library and Heritage Service, Libraries Connected, The Publishers Association and The Royal Society of Literature.
