Someone is trying to save the world from dangerous ideas by censoring popular comics – but who will save our freedom to read from the censors? The ALA Intellectual Freedom Round Table and Graphic Novels and Comics Round Table are teaming up to bring you a very ‘graphic’ Banned Books Week! Use your intellectual freedom knowledge to join a team of heroes in Escape The Dead End Of Censorship!, a virtual escape room adventure (available in image-enhanced and text-only versions). Also, learn more about our Banned Books Week 2020 programming, including daily webinars hosted by GNCRT and the #BannedBooksWeek in Action social media campaign.
ALA’s 2017 Annual Conference is in Windy City Chicago and the Office for Intellectual Freedom will be there staffing the different committee meetings and programs. Committee meetings and programs are open to any attendee, and they’re often a good way to learn about the business of ALA and its intellectual freedom initiatives.
