Bless Me Ultima

Artist: Mary Burchill

Banned/Challenged Book: Bless Me, Ultima

Reason for Banning: Banned for containing Satanism, offensive language, violence, religious viewpoints, and sexually explicit content.

Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: My husband and I have spent time in New Mexico as Park Rangers. We came to appreciate the varied cultures that thrive there. One is the Spanish/Mexican/Chicano population. Their acceptance of religion mixed with mysticism that speaks to them and makes their lives so rich is fascinating. This author captures all of that in his writings. I just recently started what is called “art quilting.” The theme is from the cover when it was first published.
