The Forbidden Library

Tuesday 26th September / presented by Kylie Sturgess

Only a month ago many schools in Western Australia celebrated Book Week, a week highlighting Australian children’s literature.

But what if there was a week about books that we can’t read?

In the US, this week is Banned Book Week, a week that celebrates our right and freedom to read.

While this event isn’t happening in Australia, there can still be an impact of banned books on the community and society.

Debra Summers, President of Public Libraries WA spoke to RTRFM's Fiona Bartholomaeus to tell us more about our right to read.
