The ALA Intellectual Freedom Committee, the Association of American Publishers, and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund invite you our program, “My These Novels Certainly Are . . . . GRAPHIC!,” on Monday, July 13, at 1:30 PM, in McCormick Place W-184. This program will address the uniquely complex censorship issues that comic books face, both within and outside of libraries.
We have gathered together three of the best working comic artists today: Newbery Award winner Neil Gaiman, Strangers in Paradise author Terry Moore, and Eisner Award winner Craig Thompson. The panel will be moderated by Charles Brownstein, Director of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Following the program, we will host a signing with the panelists. Stay tuned for more information!
