John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, which was recently challenged in a North Dakota school, says the Beulah High School librarian is a hero and that "it's beneficial for communities to talk about the topic of banning books." Indeed it is, which is why I keep posting about it! Plus, Berendt's books are all checked out from the Bismarck Public Library... :)
P.S. The quote in my title is from Berendt's friend Esther Shaver, owner of Shavers Book Store in Savannah.
