Laurie’s been fighting censorship efforts, both against her own books and those of others, for basically her entire writing career. She’s compiled many a guide and link to resources for educators, especially in regards to Speak, and we’ve just updated it!
The Assembly on Literature for Adolescents of the NCTE (ALAN) has compiled their own great list of resources to help any educator dealing with a challenge. Called Speak Loudly, it includes challenge reports, resources to deal with an active one for classrooms and libraries, position statements, organizations of note, and more. It’s comprehensive and so helpful; we’ve added it to the guide we maintain here, and we encourage you to bookmark it and share it amongst your own colleagues!
Check out the full guide, and please know how grateful we are at Team Halse Anderson for all the work teachers, librarians, and educators do to get books into the hands of the students who need them.
