Meet Authors Stephen Chbosky & Sarah Brannen at AASL!
Stephen Chbosky, author of the highly acclaimed and frequently challenged book The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Sarah S. Brannen, author of the award-winning (and frequently challenged) Uncle Bobby’s Wedding will participate in a program at 8am Saturday, November 7 at the AASL 2009 National Conference in Charlotte (Room 202).
Chbosky and Brannen will discuss their works and the controversies that surround them — both books were on ALA’s Top Ten Banned/Challenged Books list this year. Come engage in a lively discussion about challenges, censorship and young people.
Carrie Gardner and Deborah Caldwell-Stone will discuss how best to deal with challenges and complaints; creating strong policies to protect librarians, teachers, and students; and resources available to those facing challenges.
