Banned Books in Prison


In recognition of Banned Books Week, join ACS as we welcome James Tager and Robert Pollock of literary and journalist advocacy organization PEN America for a talk about the wide discretion given to prison administrators in regulating what inmates can see and read, what sorts of books or periodicals are most likely to be restricted, and how this potentially violates their constitutional rights.

Sponsored by the NYLS chapter of the American Constitution Society.
