“Books are Weapons in the War of Ideas”

Lovely little post today–with art!–from Electric Literature on #bannedbooksweek, including this great passage from President Franklin D. Roosevelt:

“Books cannot be killed by fire. People die, but books never die. No man and no force can put thought in a concentration camp forever. No man and no force can take from the world the books that embody man’s eternal fight against tyranny. In this war, we know, books are weapons.”
