Residents of West Bend WI try to sue for the right to burn books
A group of elderly residents in West Bend Wisconsin have filed a suit to gain the right to burn Francesca Lia Block’s Baby Be-Bop. Baby Be-Bop is a young adult book featuring a protagonist dealing with his sexual identity. The suit also claims that the group has suffered emotional distress from being exposed to a book display at the library.
One suit filed to have the book removed has already been thrown out and this legal claim is likely to be rejected as well.
