Oklahoma's book burning club

Posted by: Hammer / 11:44 AM

There's a new book banning club in town, this one in Oklahoma. The Oklahomans for School Accountability provide this helpful summary of why they want to ban Twelve Days in August:

This book is not as graphic in terms of sex, but the inside of the book jacket notes this book to be for ages 12 & up and the reading level in some school databases notes the book to be at the 5th grade level. Twelve Days in August does regard homosexuality as natural.

Additionally, words such as "pissed", "hell", "damn" and "fag" were found periodically throughout the book. Some characters are also smoking marijuana and drinking.
