Speaking in front of 500 people at Florida’s Martin County School Board, Grace Linn was among the hordes of concerned citizens protesting the removal of approximately 80 books from public school libraries based on the complaints of one parent.
After introducing herself as “a hundred years young,” Linn spoke about her husband, Robert Nicoll, who was killed in World War II defending our democracy, Constitution, and freedoms.
Linn was seven months pregnant when Nicoll was first declared missing in action. She found out he had died when their daughter, Nicci, was three days old.
She then rightfully compared the book banning taking place in her district to Nazi actions. Linn has no plans to stop fighting book bans. We need more Linns in society.
