Ellie 2.0 Radio – January 29, 2022

We begin this week’s show talking about how there’s a push to ban books that make people “uncomfortable” or which contain “obscenity” (loosely defined as anything related to LGBTQ+ topics). Our featured idealists are four female Granbury, Texas high school students who bravely spoke out against their school’s efforts to review books for banning. The Big Interview is with Mikki Morrissette, the publisher and editor of Minnesota Women’s Press, who talks about a statewide “Changemakers Alliance” that’s working to make voices heard in order to create real and solutions to the many challenges we face. In the C-Block, I share about how I’m offering any library in America a free copy of my memoir, Getting to Ellen.
