Freedom to Read week


Freedom to read can never be taken for granted


Empire_of_the_word_forbidden_readingToronto Reference Library launches Freedom to Read Week with a screening of Forbidden Reading, the third part of the award winning series Empire of the Word.

Our special guests, the film's director Mark Johnston and producer Amanda Handy will join us for a Q&A session after the screening.

It's hard to believe that in our wired and connected modern world people still have to fight against censorship and freedom of expression.  Narrrated by Alberto Manguel, this documentary, with its international perspective, highlights the efforts of those who battle to preserve their intellectual independence and shine a light on censorship in all its forms.
