This author did not do due diligence on this book. It is a copy and paste job from news clipping. It does not bother to contract or talk to any of the people who requested certain books be removed. As an example, one of these stories concerns a very sexually explicit sexually illustrated book that was found right next to the children's book section on the eye level shelf. That was the reason it was asked to be moved, not banned. The library refused to move it from a section with books for elementary children and even just move it higher up away from their eye level and reach. Shame on this "Banned Books" book for not looking at the real problem of libraries who refuse to protect children or spending anytime researching these stories. Shoddy work.
