This week Mark sat down with librarian Molly Nota and bookshop owner Chelsea Major to discuss the importance of literature in defining who we are as individuals and Americans. We discuss Idaho's HB 710, an attempt to censor the materials Idaho's readers can readily access within their public libraries. We discuss the books that have defined us, how literature has the ability to represent groups that have been continuously oppressed throughout our nation's history and how books have the ability to fight ignorance and thus hate.
