Those in the Chicago area - and attendees of ALA's 2015 Midwinter Meeting - are cordially invited to the Freedom to Read Foundation's 9th Annual Banned/Challenged Author Event and Fundraiser. This year's special guest is Jeff Smith, creator of the BONE series.
BONE has been among the most frequently challenged books of the past few years, and Smith has been a strong advocate for the freedom to read, particularly in the comic and graphic novel world.
For information on tickets, and to learn more, visit www.ftrf.org/event/ChicagoMW. You can also RSVP on Facebook.
Our thanks to Roosevelt University and Scholastic for their support of this event!
