Celebrated YA author Lauren Myracle joined Acacia O’Connor of the Kids’ Right to Read Project and ABFFE’s Chris Finan on a panel at the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance conference in New Orleans on September 20, 2013. In addition to talking about Lauren’s “infected brain” (in the words of one disgruntled reader) and book challenges in general, the panel brainstormed with booksellers about what they can do in the face of censorship issues.
