Welcome to Banned Books Week

Being BOOKsteve, it goes without saying that Banned Books Week has always been close to my heart. Back in the 1980s, I actually got in trouble with my Mall for attempting to promote Banned Books Week at Waldenbooks. 

Anyway, this year's theme is Comics! Seen above is the cover to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund's handbook explaining which comics are challenged or banned these days and why. You can download a free copy at the second link below. The other two links offer more info and resources. Be sure to read a banned book this week, preferably a banned COMIC book!


It's Banned Books Week! In honor of this important observance, Yoe Books will give one dollar to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund for every share of this meme (below) on Facebook or Twitter, up to $250.00. Take the challenge! Share! Read and defend banned books!
