Zappa Memorial Fund Fights Censorhip
The American Library Association’s (ALA) Office for Intellectual Freedom and the Freedom to Read Foundation have been designated by the Frank Zappa family as among the organizations to receive contributions made in his memory
Don Wood's Library 2.0 is one of the more substantive library blogs around, and he has just posted this notice that the Frank Zappa family has established a Frank Zappa Memorial Fund to receive contributions to benefit the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom and the Freedom to Read Foundation. The OIF provides information to librarians regarding censorship, maintains a database on censorship, and publishes a newsletter . The Freedom to Read Foundation, founded by the ALA in 1969, is a legal defense fund, supporting First Amendment freedoms for librarians, authors, and other concerned parties.
Frank Zappa was a tireless advocate of freedom of expression, an innovative rock musician, and political satirist without parallel. His heirs have done his memory honor,
