Why are so many diverse books banned? Every year the library celebrates Banned Books Week and the freedom to read. Banned Books Week is an opportunity to call attention to the books most frequently targeted for censorship. Increasingly, books by diverse authors or about diverse communities wind up on the list of most challenged titles. Comic book authors Jonathan Hill (Americus), Anina Bennett (Boilerplate), and Tristan Tarwater (The Marauders' Island) will discuss this trend and express a vision for how greater inclusion means a stronger future for intellectual freedom. This panel discussion is presented and moderated by Charles Brownstein of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

Made possible by The National Endowment for the Humanities Fund of The Library Foundation.
