The Springdale Morning News - Springdale,AR has one on a book crusader from Fayetteville. What began as a concern by the mother of two school-age children about three books in Fayetteville school library system she deemed "sexually pervasive" has ballooned into a crusade with 70 books on the list.
A seven-member committee, composed of administrators, a media specialist, classroom teachers and parents, spent 18 hours reviewing the books. Committee members agreed the books should remain on the shelf.
Disappointed but not defeated, Taylor vowed to continue her fight. After scouring school libraries she found 54, and then 70, additional books offensive to her religious beliefs and she now wants them removed from library shelves.
