Why the world’s largest publisher found a book-ban lawsuit in Florida ‘irresistible’

PEN America and publisher Penguin Random House filed a federal suit against Escambia County School District over its removal of books from school libraries... Among the challenged titles were “Drama” by Raina Telgemeier; quotes from the book relating to one character’s identification as gay were listed as the sole ground for removal, according to the lawsuit. Baggett also petitioned for the removal of Duchess Harris’ “Race and Policing in Modern America,” a nonfiction resource guide intended for middle-school readers, arguing it was anti-police and written “to race-bait.”
