R.I.P. Judith Krug

Judith Krug, the woman credited with founding Banned Books Week, died on Saturday at the age of 69. Sadly, she was a woman I was unaware of until hearing of her death today, but would have been a person on my "Must Meet" list had I only known.

I will try to honor her memory by reading everything I can get my hands on and fighting to uphold Constitutional Freedom of Expression whenever and where ever I can. Will you join me?

I took a class in college about banned books, so, yeah, I'll join you.

Library activist...that's awesome. We need more controversy in this country, not about celebrity relationships but about issues that have actual relevance to our lives. Huzzah to the memory of Judith Krug!
