This One Summer…removed

CBC has picked up the removal of This One Summer, an awarded graphic novel by the Tamaki cousins, from some schools in Florida. Read the piece of news attentively, since it seems that first was removed from an elementary school and then high schools. There is definitely discussion points about purchase habits and criteria as well the defense of challenged books in the school context.

In 790, Comics and Libraries, we will have a guest speaker Meryl Jaffee that works with the Comic Book League Defense Fund, where you can find resources about comics, education, and censorship. If you are interesting in stopping by to see her, let me know.
