Slifka spoke out against both books at the Sept. 24 board meeting. The Policy 109 challenges she filed set in motion a formal committee review process that will end with a recommendation on each book to the East Penn School Board.

And in CA, it's Stephen King:
“Different Seasons” is a novel containing a collection of four Stephen King stories, which includes well-known stories “Shawshank Redemption” and “Stand By Me.” But the graphic scene covering a page and a half in “Apt Pupil” could get the whole book banned from Rocklin school libraries.
“Basically they’re judging entire book on one story,” said Amanda Wong.
