Come to Bespoke House on March 18th to see literature inspired Burlesque, Drag, Fire & more as local artists donate their craft for a good cause; Putting Banned Books BACK in the reach of students.
176 books have been removed from classrooms in Duval County, Florida, after politicians did sweeping legislation, for “review.” They have been kept in storage for 10 months with little indication of when they might return to classrooms. The removed titles were part of the Essential Voices Classroom Libraries Collection, purchased by the district in 2021. This collection “features characters representing a variety of ethnicities, religious affiliations, and gender identities" which help students see themselves and process educational material easier. Our teachers & parents are struggling & we can help while having a sparkling fun evening of 18+ entertainment inspired by literature, banned books, burned books or just pure representation in the arts. All profits raised will go to buying and dispersing these books to various little libraries in the public and notifying parents & teachers where those books can be accessed for students to read on their own since being banned from schools.
Show at 8:30pm, ID required(adult humor & entertainment)
