Authors: R. L. Stine on the Important Role Libraries Played in His Career (New Video From the American Library Association)
From ALA (via YouTube):
R.L. Stine has been writing scary stories for more than 30 years. His books have sold more than 400 million copies and have been translated into 35 languages. In this video, he credits his childhood librarian with exposing him to literature that turned him into a lifelong reader and writer. A Banned Books Week note: And of course, because he writes scary books, Stine is no stranger to censorship. His Goosebumps series came in at #15 on a list of the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of the 1990s and appeared on the same lists for 2000-2009 and 2010-2019.
