Mariko and Jillian Tamaki's award winning young adult graphic novel This One Summer was the most controversial title in the USA in 2016 - "because it includes LGBT characters, drug use and profanity, and it was considered sexually explicit with mature themes," said the ALA (American Library Association). Meet Jillian Tamaki and hear her discuss insights she gained about the importance of intellectual freedom through the challenging of her work.
