Banning queer books, past and presentPlay
School districts in dozens of states have banned or considered banning over a thousand books, many of which explore LGBTQ themes. Wellesley College associate professor Octavio González teaches a popular class on queer women's literature in the 19th and 20th centuries. González joins us to talk about how hard it was to publish queer texts in that era, and how it's connected to book bans happening today. It's the latest installment of the series, Brilliant Boston.
