The Central Library is holding events Thursday and Friday to recognize Banned Books Week, an annual celebration of the freedom to read.

At 7 p.m. Thursday in the library’s auditorium, graphic novelists Scott McCloud and Larry Marder will lead a discussion entitled “Beware of Comics!” about attempts past and present to censor that particular medium.

Friday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Mary Hollis Clark Conference Room, librarians and “special guests” will be hosting a reading marathon of excerpts from various banned books.
