Breaking The Code: The Rise And Fall Of The Comics Code
Join Will Hansen of Duke University's Rubenstein Library, and a panel of local experts, for a discussion of the Comics Code Authority and the writers, artists and publishers who broke the code and created their own stories. Propelled by public concern about violent, gory and sensual material, the Comics Code Authority (CCA) was formed in 1954 as a way of regulating "questionable" content in comic books. These restrictions led to a flourishing underground comic books market, widespread backlash from publishers and the development of modern comics and graphic novels. The panel will also include comics critic Rob Clough and John Stadler.

The Untapped Potential of the Spirituality/Consciousness Community
Saints, shamans, mystics, priests and gurus have been telling us for generations that we are much more than mere physical beings.
