UPDATED: Wed, Jul 20, 08:24AM
CBLDF Editorial Director Betsy Gomez will lead a panel of librarians, educators, and creators in a lively discussion of how and why graphic novels are attacked by censors. They’ll detail how and why graphic novels can be successfully integrated into classroom curricula, and they’ll provide tools that educators can use to counter these attacks. Participants will leave the panel better enabled to advocate for their instructional materials and their students. Panelists include Carla Riemer (Librarian, Claremont Middle School, Oakland, California), Katherine Keller (TDRL Evening & Weekend Supervisor, University Libraries, UNLV), and Matthew Holm (artist, Babymouse, Squish, Sunny Side Up), and Judd Winick (Hilo: The Boy Who Crashed to Earth; The Adventures of Barry Ween, Boy Genius).
