Neonomicon Banned In South Carolina

Back in June, a South Carolina library pulled their copy of Neonomicon from the adultbookshelves, after a 14 year old girl withdrew it using her mother’s library card, and her mother complained.

Yup.

Learning of the library’s decision to remove the book this month, Acacia O’Connor, project coordinator for the Kids’ Right to Read Project, said that “they may be calling it ‘deselection’ but we have another name for it: censorship”.

“Librarians are often our staunchest allies in the fight for the freedom to read; it is surprising that the library services director in this case is not working to defend that right. There are patrons in the district who do want to read books like Neonomicon and are not offended by its content,” said O’Connor. “Those readers have the right to make up their own minds about whether they want to read the book and not have their choices dictated by the subjective views of others.”

I wonder if South Carolina are ready for the appearance of… something…
