Remove Obscene Books in the Boone County Public School Library
Dear Boone Co. School Board:
The book Lawn Boy by Jonathan Evison, which graphically highlights a sexual encounter with a 4th grader, was recently discovered in a middle school in Boone County. If this book exists in a middle school library, what other inappropriate books are lurking in Boone County Public School libraries?
If you are unfamiliar with the contents of this book, you can listen to a parent in Louisville read an excerpt at her school board meeting by clicking here. Watch out! Even a Louisville school board member said the text was obscene!
I ask that you remove this highly inappropriate book from Boone County Public School libraries immediately and perform a full audit of school libraries in the district.
