This will be an OFF-SITE event at First Presbyterian Church: 70-35 112th Street Queens, NY 11375

This Freedom to Read Event is brought to you by D28 Action for Equity, parents from PS144, PS175, PS196, PS303, Kew & Willow Books, Something for Sophie. With the support of Aigner Chocolates and FoHi Improv.

Join us as we gather with authors, educators, advocates, and our community to defend books from censorship. We believe that everyone should have the freedom to access and explore diverse ideas and perspectives through literature, and see themselves reflected in the literature they read.

Through thought-provoking discussions, engaging workshops, storytelling, and presentations, we aim to promote the importance of intellectual freedom and the power of literature in shaping our society. Don't miss this opportunity to be part of a movement that champions the right to read!

  • Kew & Willow Books will have a pop up bookstore selling titles including those from our visiting authors.
  • Please note that parking is limited so try to take public transportation or carpool.
  • There will be a concession stand with snacks and refreshments for sale.
