Newtown residents rally over potential book ban

So far no reason was given–but it comes after backlash–to a possible ban of two LGBTQ+ books from the library at Newtown High School. The now-former members — voiced their concerns about the books and said it was due to their sexual nature, not that they had LGBTQ+ themes.

There is a vote set for Thursday night on the potential book pan. Zukowski says the meeting will still be held.
