Words that changed the world - schools workshop
This event is now in the past.
State Library’s Writer in Residence Kelly Gardiner presents free creative writing workshops for students.
Q: Which books have been banned most often in the US?
A: The Harry Potter series.
Why? Why do some countries ban facebook or Google? Who would burn books and libraries?

Kelly is the author of the Swashbuckler trilogy for young readers, and Act of Faith, a young adult novel about books, freedom and ideas.
