6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Main Library
The Eichelberger Forum, 1st Floor

Join us for a discussion on the importance of readers having intellectual freedom and the dangers of censorship our reading materials face in this special panel discussion presented by Dayton Metro Library in recognition of Banned Books Week. Christopher Finan, Executive Director of the National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC), will present a keynote address, which will be followed by a Q&A and sharing time from the guest panel: author John Kachuba, poet and college professor Furaha Henry-Jones, and college professor Sandra Sumerfield. Dayton Metro Library's Executive Director, Jeffrey Trzeciak, and Collection Development Director, Holly Richards, will also join the discussion.

 

Registration is recommended but not required.


About the panelists:

 

Christopher Finan: Mr. Finan has been an advocate for free expression for many years and is the author of several books including From the Palmer Raids to the Patriot Act: A History of the Fight for Free Speech in America, which won the 2008 Eli Oboler Award from the American Library Association. His latest work is How Free Speech Saved Democracy: The Untold History of How the First Amendment Became an Essential Tool for Securing Liberty and Social Justice.  

 

John Kachuba: John is an award-winning author of 12 books, including being a Horror Writers Association Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in Nonfiction finalist in 2020, and receiving the Sunny Award for Best Seller for Dark Entry in 2028. He teaches creative writing through Ohio University and the Gotham Writers Workshop and is a firm supporter of First Amendment "free speech" rights.

 

Furaha Henry-Jones: Furaha has 30 years’ experience teaching in both secondary and post-secondary education. She is a professor at Sinclair Community College, instructing in both English Composition and African American Literature. She has deep roots with poetry in the Dayton area – she has served as the Sinclair Poet Laureate and has received the Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award for Poetry.

 

Dr. Sandra Sumerfield: Dr. Sumerfield is an Assistant Professor of Reading and Literacy at Central State University. Her strong opposition to censorship drives her work. When teaching, her commitment is to empower her students to use resources that provide space for honest and respectful dialogue - and to find literature that tells the truth about our history, embraces critical thinking, and that respectfully represent minoritized and marginalized populations.
