Essex Book Festival and Index on Censorship invite you to join them for UNSPEAKABLE: a day of challenging and illuminating conversations, performance, exhibitions and workshops hosted by the University of Essex, that explores historic and contemporary issues of censorship, no-platforming, freedom of speech, and taboos.
