Thanks for the recommendation, Kirsten. This is on my to-read list, but I'm not there yet. My professional reading is usually done during my lunch break at work, but since I'm working from home with my wife (who is also working from home) lunches are spent
 with her instead of reading, so I'm actually getting even further behind <span id="🙁">
🙁 (but I get some more time with my wife, which is good <span id="🙂">🙂 ). </span></span></div>

 for more pressing issues of figuring out how to run an academic library remotely.</span></span></div>

<p>How is everyone holding up? I imagine most of us aren't spending a LOT of time thinking about intellectual freedom in the traditional sense right now, but I have been using some of my work-from-home time to catch up on some professional reading.</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>Last night I read a fascinating book specifically about freedom of speech on college and university campuses. The book is
<i>What Snowflakes Get Right: Free Speech, Truth, and Equality on Campus </i>by Ulrich Baer. I definitely found points to quibble with the author on, but since it's the first book-length treatment on the intersection of freedom of speech and issues of diversity,
 equity, and equality I've come across, I really appreciated Baer's efforts to take the conversation there. His writing style is enjoyable and sometimes even funny, and he does a great job of putting current free speech debates into context. I think there's
 a lot here that will inform further conversations about public libraries and other limited public forums.</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>Anyone else read it? I'd be curious what you thought!</p>
