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
på BIBLIST.

Klipp:

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.
