I had the good fortune to interview Barbara Bernstein last week (Aug. 5) about her role in the landmark Island Trees Sch. Bd. v Pico case, the school library book removal case that went to the Supreme Court. Barbara was the executive director of the Nassau County Chapter of the NYCLU, and responded to the call for help from the school librarian. Lively, informative, and definitely worth listening to. 19 minutes.
Special thanks to Donald Parker, Long Island Coalition Against Censorship for the introduction to Barbara, and to my husband for all the technical work.
The Oyez project has a terrific page on the case, including audio of the oral arguments: http://www.oyez.org/cases/1980-1989/1981/1981_80_2043
