Remembering Judith, Part 5: 2009 Memorials

Posted By Jonathan M. Kelley, Friday, April 11, 2014
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 or post a note in the comments.

Here are the other parts in the series:
Part 1: Barbara Jones
Part 2: Judith Platt
Part 3: Chris Finan
Part 4: Eva Poole, Mary Minow, Mary Curtis

For our final post today, here are some memorials of Judith from 2009 -

ALA's "Remembering Judith" page still contains numerous testimonials and links to articles and some of Judith's media appearances.

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:
