Censorship is Scary, Kids’ Right to Read Tells Rocklin School District

Kids’ Right to Read was joined by the American Library Association in defense of Stephen King’s Different Seasons which has been challenged in a school library in Rocklin, CA. A parent objected to a rape scene in the novella "Apt Pupil" and wants the book removed. In the letter, NCAC and partner organizations pointed out the constitutional implications of removing books from a library and defended the merits of King’s work as well as the horror genre generally.
