Brad Meltzer is a best-selling author of legal and historical thrillers and the creator of television shows, TED Talks, comic books and children’s books.
Recently, one school district said a list of books, including two of Meltzer’s, wouldn’t be allowed in classrooms.
Tune in to hear what the schools banned, why Meltzer and many in the district spoke, assembled and petitioned to end this press censorship – and how exercising their freedoms led to change.
