This weekend, we’re in our home base of New York City for New York Comic-Con! October 8-11, you’ll find us at booth #1764 in the Javits Center with exclusive CBLDF merchandise — including the brand-new CBLDF Liberty Annual 2015 — and apparel, signed graphic novels, prints, and more! We’re one day into the festivities, and we have an action-packed Friday ahead of us…
CBLDF Presents: Banned Comics!
Friday, October 9, 2:45 – 3:45 p.m., Room 1B03
It’s hard to believe that books are still banned in the United States and yet each year hundreds of incidents are recorded. CBLDF springs to action in these cases, providing expert support for the librarians and individuals who fight back when calls to censorship arise. CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein will examine the comics that have been banned and challenged this year, showing how they fit into recent trends in comics censorship.
