Ann Brashares, Meet Ann Wentworth

She wants to ban your books.

Ann Brashares website

Link to February 18 Fond du Lac Reporter article, "Parent adds 6 books to ban wish list".

A ban "wish list"? Some headline writer has a droll sense of humor.

Excerpt: The Fond du Lac School District offers a book screening process available through Alexandria library software. The feature allows parents/guardians to place restrictions on materials that their child can check out from school libraries. To utilize the feature, parents need to contact the library media specialist at their child's school.

When a student checks out a book, library automation system alerts the media specialist or secretary if a parent/guardian has requested a restriction of materials.

So what's the problem here, Ann W.? Next thing you know, you'll be objecting to the author's last name.
