Free Comic Book Day: Children’s Book Week Kick-Off

Comic book stores will kick off Children’s Book Week (May 4-10, 2015), the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading, by giving away over two million comics to younger readers on Free Comic Book Day. With over two dozen kid-friendly titles to choose from, there’s a free comic book available to help every young reader get into the spirit of Children’s Book Week.

Comics industry leaders Diamond Comic Distributors and Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) are partnering with Every Child a Reader and the Children’s Book Council to bring greater focus to what comics offer kids, with cross-industry promotions and targeted resources for parents & educators during Children’s Book Week. In addition to Free Comic Book Day, the organizations will partner with authors, publishers, and comics specialty and book retailers to create Children’s Book Week events spotlighting comics and the joy of reading at locations all over the United States!
