#OnThisDay in 1959 a landmark decision was made in the NY Courts that would forever alter US obscenity laws. Earlier that year Grove Press sued the Post Office for confiscating copies of Lady Chatterley's Lover. Lawyer Charles Rembar successfully argued that social and literary merits of the work superceded the sexual content. Rembar would go on to successfully argue for overturning bans in Tropic of Cancer, Fanny Hill, and more. #HistoryGetsLIT

In his private second-floor White House office, Bill Clinton confided to me in 1999 that journalists--maybe even their secret listening devices--had made his recent life hell. A handwritten sign on the desk in that private office read "Shhhh. Ken Starr may be listening."

Great contributors. Great cause. Important moment. Publisher S&S Touchstone is currently donating $3 to the ACLU for each purchased copy —digital, hardcover, or audio. I got mine on Kindle. Here‘s the link: http://iamamericabook.com/ #FirstAmendment #LitMatters

Started this one post-Thanksgiving dinner, and so far it's pretty good. I got it for free at a teacher conference I went to last weekend, which only makes me like it more. 😀 #teachersoflitsy
