" ...a school district that decreed that a series of books by Utah author
Shannon Hale should not be in the libraries in any of its nearly 50
elementary schools. *The Goose Girl* and its sequels are recommended for
grades six through eight, so younger kids, apparently, shouldn't be allowed
to read them."
Does anyone know anything about this? I read it this morning in the most
recent City Weekly. I have included a quote and a link to the whole
opinion piece. But i am mystified about the origins. Which district would
this be? Is this based on truth? If so, there should be a much louder
outcry than just small opinion piece that doesn't even give any real
