In honor of Banned Books Week, you are invited to attend a blockbuster talk featuring two important authors/artists.
Rob Rogers was fired from his political cartooning position at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 2018 for his cartoons that frequently criticized President Trump. Rogers will address the kind of overt censorship he has experienced as a cartoonist.
Yona Harvey is a poet, a professor at the University of Pittsburgh, and has contributed to the Marvel comic series Black Panther and the Crew. Harvey will talk about more subtle forms of censorship, including self-censorship.
This event is sponsored by the ACLU of Pennsylvania, Carnegie Mellon University English Department, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, and Book Fairies of Pennsylvania.
