Banned Books

The National Library of Scotland, George IV Bridge Street, Edinburgh has a fantastic exhibition of banned books which goes on to 30 October. There are early examples of censorship by the Spanish Inquisition, footage of those queueing up to buy Lady Chatterley's Lover after the trial and their reasons for doing so, a range of children's books including "The Rabbits' Wedding" by Garth Williams, Judy Blume (of course!)and many more. You can also grab a decent sandwich and cuppa. Civilised places libraries...
