Americans United for Separation of Church and State (www.au.org) has a post today giving a nod of tribute to Judith Krug.

Since 1967 Judith ran the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom. In that position and since that time she has been the leader in combating book censorship. Her biggest opponent (if you don't count ignorance) has been the Religious Right, or its predecessors, or its ilk.

Judith died at the age of 69 on Saturday. Americans United suggests we pay tribute to her efforts by reading a banned book.
