Penguin Random House Introduces a Banned Books Resource Site
Porter Anderson writes the following in “PRH Rolls Out Banned Books Resources: ‘Let Kids Read’” for Publishing Perspectives:
Today (August 15), Penguin Random House [PRH] has released its new ‘banned books resource site’—titled Let Kids Read. …
PRH’s worldwide CEO, Nihar Malaviya, says on today’s release of its new campaign, … ‘The acceleration of book bannings, challenges, and related legislation sweeping across the country is a direct threat to democracy and our constitutional rights. Diverse stories deserve to be told, and readers deserve the autonomy to choose what books they read.’
To that end, the special site set is up as a consumer-facing presentation, ending in a selection of banned books grouped by category and intended to be rotated at regular intervals.
