Five years ago today, Judith Krug passed away. To honor her memory, we are posting a series of remembrances on the Freedom to Read Foundation blog throughout the day. If you would like to add a memory, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or post a note in the comments.
Judith's family suggested posting this obituary from NPR, which includes Judith talking about her work.
And finally, here's the tribute video created by American Libraries Magazine for -- and shown at -- the Freedom to Read Foundation's 40th Anniversary Gala:
