reported across the country in 2021 compared with 2020.The association found 729 challenges against nearly 1,600 books at public schools and libraries in the past year.
It’s the highest amount the ALA has seen in 20 years of assessments.A “challenge” to a book is a “formal, written complaint filed with a library or school requesting that materials be removed because of content or appropriateness,” according to the ALA.The two most challenged books both contained LGBTQ+ themes.
Maia Kobabe’s graphic-novel “Gender Queer: A Memoir” and Jonathan Evison’s “Lawn Boy” were targetted by Republican lawmakers.Last year, Glenn Youngkin backed a local school board’s decision to ban the two books as part of his successful run for governor in Virginia.
