Books Unbanned; and Lawyers You’ll Like: Attorney Bill Schaap

Authoritarian institutions and regimes ban books. They tell people what they can and cannot read. The Catholic Church once banned the book by mathematician Johannes Kepler which demonstrated that the earth travels around the sun and not vice versa. Can this happen in America? It has already started. Many state legislatures have moved to ban books. Some 250 titles have been put on a list of books that cannot be assigned to grade schoolers and high schoolers including such classics in the American canon as To Kill a Mockingbird and even Catcher in the Rye. The censors don't want to encourage free spirits. They dont like criticism. For them the ideal citizen does not think for himself or herself, keeps her mouth shut, and goes along. Guest - Nick Higgins, Chief Librarian at Brooklyn Public Library, leading the development of transformative library services and spaces for the borough's residents at 61 sites. Nick and his team have expanded the Library's reach by creating unique programs for older adults, individuals and families impacted by the justice system, immigrants, and people experiencing homelessness.
