Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. 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.
I hope that you'll participate. The Fund's longterm strategy for best serving comics is to place themselves and comics within wider free speech and anti-censorship efforts, of which this one is major.
