Cuba and Freedom to Read

I leave for Cuba in two days. It may be interesting to see what differences there are in our perception of "Freedom to Read." I will be in an academic setting, so I will try to ask questions about censorship and let you know what I have observed. From my understanding, there are librarians, then there are librarians in Cuba. Some adhere to the state's restrictions while others keep private libraries from which they lend prohibited books. For more information on Cuba, visit our friends at Freadom. Included on the site is a list of the top ten books burned in Cuba.

Check out our "Banned Book Challenge."
