The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is a proud member of the national Banned Books Week planning committee, and this handbook was designed to help paremts, readers, teachers, students librarians, retailers, and more, to understand the history of book banning in the world of comics.
Banned Books Week celebrates the Freedom to Read by encouraging readouts, displays, and community activities designed to raise awareness of the ongoing threats of censorship that continue to occur.
CBLDF.org offers a broad range of resources about banned and challenged comics, as well as tools that libraries, retailers and individuals can use to develop their own Banned Books Week celebrations. This handbook is the first of many planned publications.
The BANNED BOOKS WEEK HANDBOOK was made possible by a grant from the Gaiman Foundation. This item is available in bundles.
