Stop Thinking That

Authors and publishers continue to point with pride when they make the American Library Association’s list of most complained about books.  It was 311 books in 2014.


The association said the complaints were about books straying from mainstream thought: “sex, drug use, homosexual themes, politics and offensive language.”


Author of the most complained about book, Sherman Alexie, said he was proud to be on the list for the fourth straight year.  “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian” concerns Native American cultural issues.


The fact that three graphic novels made the list shows comic books are becoming a vital part of modern culture, according to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
