The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is having a membership party to kick off Book Expo America, and we want you to be a part of it! Sponsored by IDW, the CBLDF Book Expo Welcome Mixer happens this Tuesday, May 24!
The CBLDF is inviting the book industry out for a welcome mixer on Tuesday, May 24, 2011. Publishing professionals, booksellers, librarians, and creators are all invited to kick off BEA. The party is free for all BEA attendees and NYC comics and book professionals and retailers!
CBLDF will be soliciting memberships and donations to support its current work protecting comics and graphic novels. Please join us, and invite your colleagues!
The attacks on books and comics are becoming more frequent and more insidious, so CBLDF needs your help to spread the word. Currently, comics and graphic novels are being targeted by customs agents in the US and Canada. Individuals are having their books and digital devices searched and seized. Meanwhile, CBLDF continues to fight laws that would affect the sale and display of comics in brick and mortar stores and online.
CBLDF is fighting to protect your content, creators, and readers in the face of these and other threats. We can’t do it without you! Come to the party and support the cause! Together, we can ensure that CBLDF protects the First Amendment rights we all depend upon to do business.
There will be a raffle over the course of the evening with great prizes, and many local comic artists and writers will be in attendance, including Paul Pope (Batman Year 100, Heavy Liquid), Jessica Abel (Writing Words and Drawing Pictures, La Perdida), Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy, Agnes Quill), Raina Telgemeier (Smile, The Babysitters Club), Paul Levitz (75 Years of DC Comics, Legion of Superheroes), Eric Wight (Frankie Pickle, The Escapist), Denis Kitchen (Kitchen Sink Press), and Michael Buckley (N.E.R.D.S., The Sisters Grimm)!
What: CBLDF’s Book Expo Member Party
Where: The Village Pourhouse, Restaurant Row, 366 West 46th Street (between 8th and 9th Ave), New York, NY
When: Tuesday, May 24, 7:00 – 10:00 p.m.
Why: To welcome BEA attendees to NYC and to help support the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund’s important First Amendment work!
