They're itchin' to burn a gay teen book in West Bend, Wisconsin. Francesca Lia Block's "Baby Be-Bop" is under attack!
You'd think the folks in West Bend, Wisconsin would have better things to do with their time than try to restrict library access to, and -failing that - BURN a book featuring a young man coming to terms with being gay.
You'd be wrong.
So, in the time-honored tradition of books that are challenged having increased sales and readership due to their new visibility, I present once more for your consideration:
Francesca Lia Block's "Baby Be-Bop"
Donate a copy to YOUR local library.
Because this book burning stuff should have died out with the Nazis. Really.
