Author Tony Diaz launched a small caravan to bring carloads of banned books into Arizona that were recently banned by public school officials in Tuscon after the city suspended its Mexican-American Studies due to a state ban on the teaching of ethnic studies.  

“We’ve unleashed this informal network that’s galvanized into a national movement. People are forming groups to read the books that have been confiscated,” says Tony.  

Panelists are:   

  • Author Tony Diaz, El Librotraficante 
  • Dr. Carmen Tafolla, Poet Laureate of San Antonio 
  • Diana Lopez, Southwest Workers’ Union, Underground Library 
  • Dr. June Pedraza, Assistant Professor, Northwest Vista College English 
  • Natalia Treviño, Associate Professor, Northwest Vista College English
