NCAC Executive Director Joan Bertin and Kids’ Right to Read Coordinator Acacia O’Connor joined KPFA radio out of Berkeley, CA on Friday, speaking about the prevalence of book challenges today and the debate over a book ratings system. Barbara Jones, Director of ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom also called in, along with Tony Diaz, founder of Libro Traficante, who shed some light on the ongoing ban of the Tucson Mexican-American studies program.
