Sedona News – Join Unify Sedona on Sunday, June 26 at the Sedona Performing Arts Center to hear experts share a range of perspectives on book banning and address questions from the audience. Speakers will include Gregg Leslie from the First Amendment Clinic at the Sandra Day O’Connor School of Law; Mary Corcoran, Programming Librarian for Flagstaff City-Coconino County Public Libraries; Rabbi Alicia Magal from the Jewish Community Center of Sedona/Verde Valley; and Afsana Nawrozi, a local student who endured the banning of reading and education as a young student in war-torn Afghanistan.
