Against advice, St. Paul bans Baldwin book
If Beale Street could talk by James Baldwin
Margaret Buyserie, Carolyn Zielinski, Vince Drago
A parent/staff committee recommended "If Beale Street Could Talk" to be put on a restricted checkout; the St. Paul School Board chose to remove the book from the library. The article includes reasons for the parents' and the Boards’ decisions. The Board also restricted children grades K-8 from checking materials out of the high school library.
