Saturday, April 1

11 am – 1 pm

Join Cathy Walthers and Caitlin Jones for a discussion about book banning.

A bill to ban the books of historian Howard Zinn from some public schools has prompted several Vineyard residents to organize this Howard Zinn Read-a-thon.

Participants will take turns reading from books by the late Zinn, a long-time professor at Boston University and author of more than 20 books. Zinn wrote extensively about the civil rights and anti-war movements, and labor history of the United States.

This event is free and open to the public.

A Power Governments Cannot Suppress, by Howard Zinn
Passionate Declarations, Essays on War and Justice by Howard Zinn
The Indispensable Zinn, The Essential Writings of the “People’s Historian”
