A Discussion Guide that Protects the Right to Read!

Color_KLL_2014Now that you have your very own copy of the CBLDF Liberty Annual 2014 (it came out yesterday, so get to your local comic shop post haste if you haven’t!), it’s time for discussion, and we have just the tool: “Protecting the Right to Read: The CBLDF Liberty Annual Speaks,” a discussion and teaching guide for parents, teachers, and retailers!

Rather than spend the time trying to describe the Annual discussion guide, we’ll let author and educator (and frequent CBLDF collaborator) Meryl Jaffe and CBLDF Liberty Annual 2014 editor Lauren Sankovitch fill you in:

We hope you enjoyed the 2014 CBLDF Liberty Annual and thank you for your support. We’ve had a blast bringing you these awesome stories and hope you continue these conversations in your homes, schools, classrooms, and reading groups. On [these pages], we have some cool links for you to explore on book banning, the First Amendment, violent and nonviolent protest, and on repealing laws. But there’s so much more! Throughout this guide, you’ll find links to games, videos, and suggestions for additional reading and discussions.

The CBLDF Liberty Annual 2014 features dozens of legendary creators, who crafted 48 pages of thrilling adventure, powerful drama, and gut-busting hilarity that is not only all-new but all ages! The list of contributors is a veritable who’s who:
