The 10th Legislative District and Young Democrats of Skagit County present: fREADom Night at the Lincoln Theatre

Read, Think, and Speak Freely.

The national landscape of public and school libraries is becoming increasingly politically charged, due to challenges to beloved classics and new books by book banning campaigns. In Washington state, librarians, collection managers, and school boards are on the front lines, and innovatively meeting these challenges.

Hear from public libraries’ collections services and local school boards’ perspectives. Be inspired by banned book and poetry readings by a diverse group of youth and performers.

The dystopian world evoked by the classic film Fahrenheit 451 will provoke thoughtful reflection.

Join us for an informative, fun, and inspiring evening celebrating diversity in thought, speech, and written word.

As always, the Lincoln Theatre’s wine and beer reception, and snack/beverage concession will be open.

Speakers include:

  • Jessica Russell, Sno-Isle Libraries Collection Services
  • Laura Flores Cailloux, Mount Vernon School Board
  • Touché Sisters, Drag Queen Story Time
  • Satin-Deseree Arnett, Stanwood-Camano Alliance for Equity
  • Featured student readings of poetry and banned books
