Bethel school district bans 'Clan of the Cave Bear'

28 April 1992


"Clan of the Cave Bear" was removed from the Cascade Middle School library after the District Board reviewed a request from a concerned parent. The rape scene was considered inappropriate for middle school readers. Other school libraries in the area chose to retain the book. The book was on the NY Times best seller list and had won a number of literary awards.
