Reading Freely at Glad Day Bookshop

On a very snowy evening in Toronto this week, folks filled the event space at Glad Day Bookshop to hear all about the history of the Freedom to Read in Canada. In this episode of The Book Room, we hear from Marcus McCann, lawyer and co-owner of Glad Day, as he details the bookstore’s many run-ins with state censorship and book seizure.

Bonus feature: Jael Richardson and the Festival of Literary Diversity win the 2019 Freedom to Read Award.
