A brief personal narrative published in the West Virginia Library Association Newsletter recounting a first-hand childhood experience with banned books and how it informed a librarian's interest in neutrality and inclusion in libraries. Among the protests and boycotts, schools were bombed and dynamited, houses were stoned, and school buses were shot at.
