Book lovers launched an audacious plan this week to help readers trapped in Florida. A website called will send censored and restricted books for free (plus the cost of shipping) to any library, school or person in the Sunshine State.

This airlift was launched Tuesday with a $100,000 donation from Boston tech entrepreneur Paul English. BannedBooksUSA’s co-founder is Joyce Linehan, a member of the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. Electric Literature is providing administrative support, and, the website that supports indie bookstores, is handling fulfillment.
