Dangerous Ideas in Difficult Times: Rob Rogers and Yona Harvey on the Problems of Censorship

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.
