It takes courage to protect intellectual freedom and the freedom to read. To that end, the sponsors of Banned Books Week have identified outstanding individuals and groups who have stood up to defend their freedom to read by honoring them with the title Heroes of Banned Books Week.

Today we feature Tony Diaz. In 2012, Tony Diaz headed the Librotraficante Caravan to Smuggle Banned Books back into Arizona.
