The UK has no official censorship – but does that make us too complacent? Explore the challenges facing LGBTQ+ Young Adult literature with a panel of authors and experts. What are the invisible barriers to expression and publication? And how do editors, publishers, teachers, librarians, parents or even authors contribute to unofficial censorship around LGBTQ+ issues? Featuring Robin Stevens, author of the Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries series, and poet Dean Atta, in conversation at the British Library in London.
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.
