BCB IBD Stencil
Every year we create our signature “Bad Citizen” Graffiti Stencil to highlight the authors and the words that push us to think, read, and be disruptive when necessary. This year’s stencil features a timely quote from George Orwell. “In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
