Är Kurt Vonneguts roman Slakthus 5 olämplig för bibliotek?
Vid åtminstone ett amerikanskt bibliotek är den det.

Även vid svenska bibliotek finns krafter som gärna stoppar
olämplig litteratur, skam till sägandes. Vilket vi sett även här


A year ago, Republic resident Wes Scroggins -- who doesn't have any
children in the district --
filed a complaint about the appropriateness of three books. He argued
that they teach principles
contrary to the Bible.

The district created a task force to develop book standards that were
then used to review the three books.

Last week, following a recommendation from Superintendent Vern Minor,
the board voted 4-0 --
three members were absent -- to keep Laurie Halse Anderson's "Speak,"
an award-winning book
about date rape, and remove Vonnegut's "Slaughterhouse-Five" and
"Twenty Boy Summer" by Sarah Ockler.
