First Five Now: Author Brad Meltzer on Battling for Banned Books

November 10 @ 2:00 pm EST

Free
Brad Meltzer

They banned his books. He fought back.

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.

First Five Now is a Freedom Forum conversation that explores topical issues and features current newsmakers who are using the five freedoms of the First Amendment to guide their work.
