San Miguel PEN presents... Suzanna Dworsky
Book Banning, the Courts and the Constitution
Book banning in the US may never have been worse, but it’s not new: the Supreme Court issued its one and only opinion on the issue 41 years ago, in a case called Pico, when a group of students sued their school board for banning books the board considered “anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Semetic [sic], and just plain filthy.” Today the same arguments—over the realities of our racial history and LGBTQA+ characters or themes—are being hashed out in federal courts. Where is all this going? Does the Constitution allow book bans? How did the Constitution figure in the Pico opinion, and how will courts—up to and possibly including the Supreme Court—interpret it in book banning cases this year?
About the Venue
San Miguel PEN Presents Winter Series will all take place at Casa de La Cultura, located in the heart of San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato. This location provides the perfect backdrop for conversations of such profound importance.
