Authors on Banning Books

"I want to congratulate librarians...who have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves"      -Kurt Vonnegut                                                         

“A word to the unwise.
Torch every book.
Char every page.
Burn every word to ash.
Ideas are incombustible.
And therein lies your real fear.” 
― Ellen Hopkins

“Something will be offensive to someone in every book, so you've got to fight it.” ― Judy Blume
