Book Smuggling


Writers and activists are setting up an underground library in Tucson, Arizona. The librotraficante movement is an effort to expose Tucson students to the collection of books banned when the school district suspended its Mexican-American studies program.

“The word librotraficante shouldn’t exist in America…You shouldn’t have to smuggle books.”
