A Bad Kitty Christmas was once banned from a Beaumont elementary school because it mentioned a family with two moms; a reference book on the Salem Witch Trials was kept out of a school in Pharr for being too violent; and a Channelview mother successfully had The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby banned from her son’s elementary school because of language – specifically, the phrase “poo poo head.” If these sound ridiculous to you, head over to Brazos to hear local authors and Houston librarians read from some of their favorite challenged and banned books in honor of Banned Books Week. Dress as your favorite controversial character – you’ve got options, from Huckleberry Finn to a hobbit – and enjoy themed snacks while taking Instax pics with your favorite banned or challenged book.
