Judy Blume

"What effect does [the climate of censorship] have on a writer?....It's chilling. It's easy to become discouraged, to second-guess everything you write. There seemed to be no one to stand up to the censors....so I began to speak out about my experiences. And once I did, I found that I wasn't as alone as I'd thought." -- from Judy Blume's introduction to Places I Never Meant to Be Judy Blume is not alone: Many of today's most distinguished authors of books for young people have found their work censored or challenged. Eleven of them have contributed original stories to this collection. Along with a story written by the late Norma Klein when she was a student at Barnard College, they comprise a stunning literary achievement as well as a battle cry against censorship.

Brian Thornton

The strongest witness poetry can make is to the personal life-and when that personal life is extraordinary, then extraordinary poems can come forth. Such is the life of Brian Thornton, who as a young man lost most of his sight, who has performed in a carnival sideshow, and who has lived and traveled in the mideast during the joy and violence of the Arab Spring. And 'Places We Were Never Meant To See' traces these movements of a life, in carefully crafted language and rhythms that befit such a life and those who have touched it. Reaching into our oldest themes and deepest fears, these poems discover the vision found in darkness, inviting us to "let the evening bring the chance for you to see."
