Quote of the Day (James Patterson, on How ‘You Can Explain a World Through a Library’)

“One of the wonderful things about books is it allows us to find out about different ways of thinking, of living, different problems people have, different ways of finding joy. You can explain a world through a library and that’s a good thing. To cut that down is not useful.”—Bestselling American novelist James Patterson, reacting to a Florida elementary school’s removal of one of his youth adult books from their library, quoted by Marco della Cava, “James Patterson: If Florida Bans My Books, 'No Kids Under 12 Should Go to Marvel Movies,'” USA Today, Mar. 15, 2023
