ALA Intellectual Freedom BlogPublished February 06, 2018 Posted by Denise Hill
Intellectual Freedom Blog hosted by the Office for Intellectual Freedom, a unit of the American Library Association, provides "a venue for coverage of time-sensitive news in intellectual freedom and librarianship." The topics, however, are of interest to a much wider audience, including writers, readers, and academics - teachers, students, and administrators. Recent post titles include: "Is There a Connection Between Mental Health and Intellectual Freedom?" by Allyson Mower; "‘The Post,’ the Pentagon Papers, and the Era of Fake News" by Robert Sarwark; "Xicanas/Latinas and Intellectual Freedom in College: When Reading is Political" by Eva Rios-Alvarado; "Reading as a Mirror: Banning the New Jim Crow in New Jersey Prisons" by Jane’a Johnson [pictured]; and weekly roundups of Intellectual Freedom News.
