I Read Banned Comics: A Celebration of Challenged Comics and Graphic Novels
Stop by the Kathryn A. Martin Library first floor any time between 4 and 5:30 pm on Monday, September 22, for an informal event celebrating graphic novels and comic books! Browse books from the UMD and Duluth Public Library collections, enter our door prize drawings, create comics-themed crafts, and chat with experts and other comics fans! Refreshments will be served.
This event, co-sponsored by the Duluth Public Library, is in celebration of Banned Books Week, September 21-27, 2014, an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. According to the American Library Association, "Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community—librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types—in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular."
Banned Books Week 2014 highlights frequently banned or challenged comic books and graphic novels. For more information on Banned Books Week, see http://www.ala.org/bbooks/.
