As the Cedar Rapids Public Library celebrates its 120th year, I could think of no other person who touched more lives through the library than Evelyn Zerzanek, the children’s librarian for 34 years. She started many programs for children during those years, but it was the extraordinary collection of illustrations she solicited from the authors and artists of children’s book, that would become her legacy. Zerzanek was born in Wisconsin in 1904 and moved to Cedar Rapids with her parents, Edward and Albia Zerzanek, in 1918. She began working as a summer apprentice at the library in 1920, while still a student at old Washington High, graduating from there in 1922. She continued as a student assistant during her studies at Coe College (Class of 1925) and the University of Iowa. She lived with her parents at 1821 Ridgewood Terrace SE until selling it in 1942 and buying a home at 554 Vernon Dr. SE. In April 1938, Zerzanek’s parents died within two weeks of each other. That year, she also earned her master’s degree in library science from the University of Chicago and went to work for the Cedar Rapids Public Library. She spent the next 34 years promoting reading programs for children at the library, where she was the head children’s librarian for 23 years. She began story hours and summer programs to encourage children to read. “Children naturally love to read once they acquire the reading habit, a habit that should be established before youngsters start to school,” she said. Kid questions As part of her duties, Zerzanek and her staff fielded thousands of questions from youngsters, some of them unusual. For example: “What’s a pyramid look like inside?” “Do you have a book that isn’t literature? I had one of those, and it’s too hard.” “What’s a good Mexican name for a dog?” And then there was the youngster who presented a written request for a book about “Abharm Licion.” The librarians figured that one out and found the child a book about the 16th president. Old series out Ever on the lookout for books with outstanding literary value, Zerzanek phased old series books out of the library. By 1965, standards such as the Bobbsey Twins, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys had disappeared from the shelves. “It isn’t that they’re harmful,” she said. “But it’s the consensus of most professional children’s librarians that the old series books, however popular they have been in the past, just don’t measure up to the demand for quality in children’s literature.” She suggested her young readers instead try books by Beverly Cleary, Laura Ingalls Wilder and Jay Williams. Letters from afar Zerzanek began her efforts to connect her young readers with the outside world in 1953. She located addresses for child stars, Europe’s royal children and other internationally known children. In letters to them, she wrote, “Do you think reading is fun? If you do, will you tell us why, and name some of the books you like best?” Letters, written by the children, or by their mothers, nannies or secretaries, arrived from Holland, Sweden, Greece, England, Hollywood, New York and Washington. Among them were letters from Carola Boxer, daughter of children’s author Emily Hahn; Jennie Hecht, daughter of playwright Ben Hecht; young actors Bobby Driscoll and George Winslow; President Eisenhower’s grandchildren; and Edgar Bergen’s daughter, Candice. Illustration collection An unsolicited donation to the library from Kurt Wiese, illustrator of the “Freddy” books, was so well-liked, it inspired Zerzanek to begin collecting illustrations. She began writing to publishers, writers and illustrators in 1960, requesting original illustrations to display during National Library Week. Original works began pouring into the library of Curious George, Little Toot, Kiki and Henry Huggins’ son. The illustrations were in oils, watercolors, chalk, crayon, pencil and ink. After the first year, the collection had 150 items. By 1971, it held 750. “I am continuously amazed at the generous response of the artists,” Zerzanek said. “They even send letters thanking me for thinking of including them in our collection. Sometimes the letters are more interesting than the pictures.” Collection grows Probably one of the most memorable donations came from Jean and Cle Kinney of New Milford, Conn. When she sent a letter requesting art from the authors of “What Does the Tide Do?,” Zerzanek had no idea that Jean was the daughter of Dr. C.A. Stout of Cedar Rapids. Another illustration, donated in 1971 by Tom Eaton, author and illustrator of “Steven and the Green Turtle,” was a personalized picture of Steven pointing the way from Costa Rica to Cedar Rapids with a sign reading “Cedar Rapids, U.S.A.: 2185 miles.” Eaton’s letter to Zerzanek included this note: “For the benefit of any kid who asks how I knew the mileage between Costa Rica and Cedar Rapids — I guessed.” “There has been almost universal acceptance of the collection among both the illustrators and publishers,” Zerzanek said. “I don’t really understand why.” In the process of collecting the art work, Zerzanek formed friendships with illustrators, exchanging Christmas cards every year. Sometimes her correspondence led to visits to the library by authors and artists. Largest of its kind When Zerzanek retired in 1972, the library owned more than 900 original illustrations from children’s books by artists/writers like Dr. Seuss, H.A. Rey (“Curious George”), Maurice Sendak (“Where the Wild Things Are”) and Arthur Geisert, an internationally known illustrator and writer of children’s books who grew up in Bernard, Iowa, near Dubuque. The Evelyn Zerzanek Collection of Original Art from Children’s Literature is believed to be the largest of its kind in the United States, including everything from preliminary sketches to finished illustrations. Zerzanek moved to Arizona after she retired in 1972. She died there in 1995 at the age of 91. The art collection was moved to the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art after the Flood of 2008. l Comments: (319) 398-8338;

"To prohibit the reading of certain books is to declare the inhabitants to be either fools or slaves."
- Claude Adrien Helvétius

" #Censorship is the tool of those who have the need to hide actualities from themselves and from others. Their fear is only their inability to face what is real, and I can't vent any anger against them. I only feel this appalling sadness. Somewhere, in their upbringing, they were shielded against the total facts of our existence. They were only taught to look one way when many ways exist."
- Charles Bukowski

Banned Books That Shaped #America

The Library of Congress created an exhibit, "Books that Shaped America," that explores books that "have had a profound effect on American life." Below is a list of #Books from that exhibit that have been #Banned #Censored challenged.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain, 1884

The first ban of Mark Twain’s American classic in Concord, MA in 1885 called it “trash and suitable only for the slums.” Objections to the book have evolved, but only marginally. Twain’s book is one of the most-challenged of all time and is frequently challenged even today because of its frequent use of the word “nigger.” Otherwise it is alleged the book is “racially insensitive,” “oppressive,” and “perpetuates racism.”

The Autobiography of Malcolm X, Malcolm X and Alex Haley, 1965 (Grove Press)

Objectors have called this seminal work a “how-to-manual” for crime and decried because of “anti-white statements” present in the book. The book presents the life story of Malcolm Little, also known as Malcolm X, who was a human rights activist and who has been called one of the most influential #Americans in recent history.

Beloved, Toni Morrison, 1987

Again and again, this Pulitzer-prize winning novel by perhaps the most influential African-American writer of all time is assigned to high school English students. And again and again, parental complaints are lodged against the book because of its violence, sexual content and discussion of bestiality.
#BannedBooks #PoliceState

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, Dee Brown, 1970

Subtitled “An Indian History of the American West,” this book tells the history of #UnitedStates growth and expansion into the West from the point of view of Native Americans. This book was banned by a school district official in Wisconsin in 1974 because the book might be polemical and they wanted to avoid controversy at all costs. “If there’s a possibility that something might be controversial, then why not eliminate it,” the official stated.
#BookState #Fascism

The Call of the Wild, Jack London, 1903

Generally hailed as Jack London’s best work, The Call of the Wild is commonly challenged for its dark tone and bloody violence. Because it is seen as a man-and-his-dog story, it is sometimes read by adolescents and subsequently challenged for age-inappropriateness. Not only have objections been raised here, the book was banned in Italy, Yugoslavia and burned in bonfires in Nazi Germany in the late 1920s and early 30s because it was considered “too radical.”


Catch-22, Joseph Heller, 1961

A school board in Strongsville, OH refused to allow the book to be taught in high school English classrooms in 1972. It also refused to consider Cat’s Cradle as a substitute text and removed both books from the school library. The issue eventually led to a 1976 District Court ruling overturning the ban in Minarcini v. Strongsville.


The Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger, 1951

Young Holden, favorite child of the censor. Frequently removed from classrooms and school libraries because it is “unacceptable,” “obscene,” “blasphemous,” “negative,” “foul,” “filthy,” and “undermines morality.” And to think Holden always thought “people never notice anything.”


Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury, 1953

Rather than ban the book about book-banning outright, Venado Middle school in Irvine, CA utilized an expurgated version of the text in which all the “hells” and “damns” were blacked out. Other complaints have said the book went against objectors religious beliefs. The book’s author, Ray Bradbury, died this year.


For Whom the Bell Tolls, Ernest Hemingway, 1940

Shortly after its publication the U.S. Post Office, which purpose was in part to monitor and censor distribution of media and texts, declared the book nonmailable. In the 1970s, eight Turkish booksellers were tried for “spreading propaganda unfavorable to the state” because they had published and distributed the text. This wasn’t Hemingway’s only banned book – A Farewell to Arms and Across the River and Into the Trees were also censored domestically and abroad in Ireland, South Africa, Germany and Italy.


Gone With the Wind, Margaret Mitchell, 1936

The Pulitzer-prize winning novel (which three years after its publication became an Academy-Award Winning film) follows the life of the spoiled daughter of a southern plantation owner just before and then after the fall of the Confederacy and decline of the South in the aftermath of the Civil War. Critically praised for its thought-provoking and realistic depiction of ante- and postbellum life in the South, it has also been banned for more or less the same reasons. Its realism has come under fire, specifically its realistic portrayal – though at times perhaps tending toward optimistic -- of slavery and use of the words “nigger” and “darkies.”


The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck, 1939

Kern County, California has the great honor both of being the setting of Steinbeck’s novel and being the first place where it was banned (1939). Objections to profanity—especially goddamn and the like—and sexual references continued from then into the 1990s. It is a work with international banning appeal: the book was barred in Ireland in the 50s and a group of booksellers in Turkey were taken to court for “spreading propaganda” in 1973.


The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1925

Perhaps the first great American novel that comes to the mind of the average person, this book chronicles the booze-infused and decadent lives of East Hampton socialites. It was challenged at the Baptist College in South Carolina because of the book’s language and mere references to sex.


Howl, Allen Ginsberg, 1956

Following in the footsteps of other “Shaping America” book Leaves of Grassby Walt Whitman, Allen Ginsberg’s boundary-pushing poetic works were challenged because of descriptions of homosexual acts.


In Cold Blood, Truman Capote, 1966

The subject of controversy in an AP English class in Savannah, GA after a parent complained about sex, violence and profanity. Banned but brought back.


Invisible Man, Ralph Ellison, 1952

Ellison’s book won the 1953 National Book Award for Fiction because it expertly dealt with issues of black nationalism, Marxism and identity in the twentieth century. Considered to be too expert in its ruminations for some high schools, the book was banned from high school reading lists and schools in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Washington state.


The Jungle, Upton Sinclair, 1906

For decades, American students have studied muckraking and yellow journalism in social studies lessons about the industrial revolution, with The Jungleheadlining the unit. And yet, the dangerous and purportedly socialist views expressed in the book and Sinclair’s Oil led to its being banned in Yugoslavia, East Germany, South Korea and Boston.


Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman, 1855

If they don’t understand you, sometimes they ban you. This was the case when the great American poem Leaves of Grass was first published and the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice found the sensuality of the text disturbing. Caving to pressure, booksellers in New York, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania conceded to advising their patrons not to buy the “filthy” book.


Moby-Dick; or The Whale, Herman Melville,1851

In a real head-scratcher of a case, a Texas school district banned the book from its Advanced English class lists because it “conflicted with their community values” in 1996. Community values are frequently cited in discussions over challenged books by those who wish to censor them.


Native Son, Richard Wright, 1940

Richard Wright’s landmark work of literary naturalism follows the life of young Bigger Thomas, a poor Black man living on the South Side of Chicago. Bigger is faced with numerous awkward and frustrating situations when he begins working for a rich white family as their chauffer. After he unintentionally kills a member of the family, he flees but is eventually caught, tried and sentenced to death. The book has been challenged or removed in at least eight different states because of objections to “violent and sexually graphic” content.


Our Bodies, Ourselves, Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, 1971

Challenges of this book about the female anatomy and sexuality ran from the book’s publication into the mid-1980s. One Public Library lodged it “promotes homosexuality and perversion.” Not surprising in a country where some legislators want to keep others from saying the word “vagina.”


The Red Badge of Courage, Stephen Crane, 1895

Restricting access and refusing to allow teachers to teach books is still a form of censorship in many cases. Crane’s book was among many on a list compiled by the Bay District School board in 1986 after parents began lodging informal complaints about books in an English classroom library.


The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne, 1850

According to many critics, Hawthorne should have been less friendly toward his main character, Hester Prynne (in fairness, so should have minister Arthur Dimmesdale). One isn’t surprised by the moralist outrage the book caused in 1852. But when, one hundred and forty years later, the book is still being banned because it is sinful and conflicts with community values, you have to raise your eyebrows. Parents in one school district called the book “pornographic and obscene” in 1977. Clearly this was before the days of the World Wide Web.


Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, Alfred C. Kinsey, 1948

How dare Alfred Kinsey ask men and women questions about their sex lives! The groundbreaking study, truly the first of its scope and kind, was banned from publication abroad and highly criticized at home.


Stranger in a Strange Land, Robert A. Heinlein, 1961

The book was actually retained after a 2003 challenge in Mercedes, TX to the book’s adult themes. However, parents were subsequently given more control over what their child was assigned to read in class, a common school board response to a challenge.


A Streetcar Named Desire, Tennessee Williams, 1947

The sexual content of this play, which later became a popular and critically acclaimed film, raised eyebrows and led to self-censorship when the film was being made. The director left a number of scenes on the cutting room floor to get an adequate rating and protect against complaints of the play’s immorality.
#BooksInPrison #NewWorldOrder

Their Eyes Were Watching God, Zora Neale Hurston, 1937

Parents of students in Advanced English classes in a Virginia high school objected to language and sexual content in this book, which made TIME magazine’s list of top 100 Best English-Language Novels from 1923 to 2005.


To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee, 1960

Harper Lee’s great American tome stands as proof positive that the censorious impulse is alive and well in our country, even today. For some educators, the Pulitzer-prize winning book is one of the greatest texts teens can study in an American literature class. Others have called it a degrading, profane and racist work that “promotes white supremacy.”


Uncle Tom's Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe, 1852 #USAHoles

Like Huck Finn, Of Mice and Men and Gone With the Wind, the contextual, historically and culturally accurate depiction of the treatment of Black slaves in the United States has rankled would-be censors.


Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak, 1963

Sendak’s work is beloved by children in the generations since its publication and has captured the collective imagination. Many parents and librarians, however, did much hand-wringing over the dark and disturbing nature of the story. They also wrung their hands over the baby’s penis drawn in In the Night Kitchen.


The Words of Cesar Chavez, Cesar Chavez, 2002

The works of Chavez were among the many books banned in the dissolution of the Mexican-American Studies Program in Tucson, Arizona. The Tucson Unified School District disbanded the program so as to accord with a piece of legislation which outlawed Ethnic Studies classes in the state
