Free Speech Festival for Avery Doninger

Wally Lamb is just one of the artists and writers coming together to sponsor a “Free Speech Festival” this Sunday in Connecticut to help raise money for Avery Doninger.

The case has become a national civil rights cause célèbre over whether schools can take punitive action if they disapprove of what students write on their personal blogs, and the Doningers are appealing a previous ruling in favor of the school administration.
