    A book about Anne Frank has been removed from a Florida school library after a parent group complained that it was sexually explicit and minimized the Holocaust. The tome titled “Anne Frank’s Diary: The Graphic Adaptation” was yanked from the shelves at Vero Beach High School in Indian River County after Moms for Liberty voiced concerns, WPTV reported. “We think true history absolutely needs to be taught, the Holocaust, the Anne Frank diary,” Jennifer Pippin, chairwoman of the group’s local chapter, told the outlet. But she argued that it was inappropriate that the book features illustrations of the girl strolling...

  • Texas state representative suggests banning "Lonesome Dove"

    Why it matters: "Lonesome Dove," the Pulitzer-winning novel by the late author Larry McMurtry, might be the most beloved book in Texas history. The big picture: The book about two retired Texas Rangers on an epic cattle drive during the last days of the West includes scenes of sexual assault and characters who are prostitutes. Driving the news: Patterson's READER Act would require vendors to rate books with sexual content before selling them to school districts. Patterson has argued the legislation is an attempt to rid school libraries of books inappropriate for children. Texas already bans more books than any...

    Chinese authorities arrested two men who possessed a children’s book that officials labeled "seditious." Police and customs officers arrested the men, aged 38 and 50, on Mar. 13 after searching their homes and finding multiple copies of the book, which describes sheep holding back wolves from the village. The wolves want to take over a village and eat the sheep, pushing the sheep to fight back against them. Authorities have interpreted the book as referring to Hong Kong and Beijing. Officers relied on a colonial-era law to justify sending the men to prison, according to QZ. Both men were released...

The group, however, was not allowed in, with video of the incident showing a security guard telling them: 'They told me to say anyone wearing Trump has to go right now.' The group then booed at the order, calling DeSantis out for not supporting 'free speech' as tensions rise...

    First lady Jill Biden said there isn’t a chance in her book that President Biden will decide not to run for a second term. “It’s Joe’s decision and we support whatever he wants to do. If he’s in, we’re there. If he wants to do something else, we’re there too,” Biden told CNN in an interview while in Africa over the weekend. “Not in my book,” she added when asked if there was a chance her husband would not seek reelection. “I’m all for it, of course.” Also while in Africa, Biden gave one of the strongest nods towards a...

    Mike Pompeo’s new memoir might not be flying off the bookshelves—but bulk orders from his political action committee on the day that it was released appear to have propelled it onto the New York Times bestseller list, anyways. Champion American Values, a PAC promoting the former secretary of state and likely Republican presidential candidate, spent $42,000 on the bulk orders of the book on the day it was published, according to a Monday filing with the Federal Election Commission. The purchase was first reported by Forbes. That was enough to get “Never Give An Inch: Fighting for the America I...

    The author of a book which was pulled from schools across the US over its description of a sex act between two 10-year-old boys has said it was never intended for young children. Lawn Boy, a 2018 novel by Jonathan Evison, drew national attention in 2021 after it was found in school libraries despite scenes that parents labeled 'pedophilic'. School districts in at least 12 states removed the book from libraries because of the controversial passages. The passages included descriptions of a sexual encounter between two fourth-grade boys at a church youth-group meeting. Evison told The Washington Post the book...
