CBLDF “Banned Books Handbook”

Gearing up for Banned Books Week (September 21-27), the CBLDF has created a free resource that gives an in-depth list of graphic novels that have been banned along with the reason why. The handbook also explains how to report and fight censorship. This is a perfect tool for both librarians and teachers in preparation for Banned Books Week celebrations.

They have also created discussion guides for educators who would like to use banned comics in their teaching. Each guide includes: synopsis, themes, reason challenged, suggested age range, as well as discussion questions and activities to get students talking about the controversial topics in a thought-provoking way.
