This year, Saturday 5:00 - 6:00 pm, November 11th, the Intellectual Freedom Committee will commemorate ten years of speakers and awards in memory of Julie Boucher. Each year we recognize a member of the library community, as well as someone outside of libraries, for random acts of intellectual freedom. In addition, we've brought you interesting and sometimes inspiring speakers, including Michael Willhoite, author of Daddy's Roommate; former Colorado Congresswoman Pat Schroeder; Patty Calhoun, editor of Westword; and the late Charles Levendosky, noted Bill of Rights expert and columnist for the Casper Star-Tribune.
On this tenth anniversary we are not only looking back, but looking ahead, aware that intellectual freedom is under assault as never before. Our special guest speaker at this event will be Julie's brother, the very provocative Jello Biafra. There will be appetizers and a cash bar.
Many of you are very familiar with Jello Biafra's music and other works. For those of you who are not, below are some biographical links you may find of interest. I hope to see lots of you there.
