Librotraficante in town tonight

Lonnie Anderson

In last week’s paper, I interviewed Rudolfo Anaya about censorship. His landmark Chicano novel Bless Me, Ultima was boxed up and put into storage along with a host of other books in Tucson, Ariz. It’s part of a push to do away with ethnic studies programs the education department considers divisive.

New Mexico is no stranger to this conversation. Anaya has on file an article published in 1981 about an attempt in our state Legislature to set standards for schoolbooks. In that article, one state senator is quoted as saying she personally saw to it that copies of Ultima were burned in Bloomfield, N.M.

Tonight the Librotraficante caravan hauling contraband literature from Houston to Arizona will be making a stop in Albuquerque. At 7 p.m., the banned book bash will commence at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW).
