Today my colleagues from the American Library Association (ALA) and Intellectual Freedom units are attending services in Chicago in memoriam of Judith Krug.
I first met Judith at an ALA program about challenged books and what to do in such situations. I was forever impacted by her strong presence and passionate eloquence. She always had a big smile on her face and was quick to respond with precise words. I admired her wealth of knowledge and her decisive nature. Judith was a dame, a lady in every sense of the word. It always impressed me how stylish and finely dress she always was.
Judith was an amazing friend of REFORMA. We were fortunate to coordinate programs to discuss Spanish-language challenged books with her. She clearly expressed her support and fierce advocacy for immigrants. I will miss Judith. She was a strong and respected advocate for intellectual freedom and freedom of information for all.
