It’s been a spectacular year for CBLDF, with victory in the Ryan Matheson case, clearing the name of an American citizen who was arrested for the comics on his laptop; a $60,000 donation from the Gaiman Foundation to pay for an expanded education program; Banned Books Week and sponsorship of the Kids Right to Read Project; and much, much more. But with recent book challenges and the removal of books such as Alan Moore’s Neonomicon from libraries, it’s obvious CBLDF still has a lot of work to do.
Let’s take a look at our year in review and our plans for the future:
This holiday season, The Will & Ann Eisner Family Foundation is encouraging everyone who believes in the CBLDF’s important work protecting the freedom to read comics to become a member or give a gift membership in the organization. When you do, they will contribute $10 for each new membership and $5 for every renewing membership made from now until December 31, so join today!
