Banned Books

IN OUR MOTHER'S HOUSE

2012

Removed from the shelves of elementary school libraries in Davis County (UT) after a group of parents raised objections about the suitability of the story. It remained available only if a student presented a permission slip from a parent to check out the book. A parent then sued the Davis School District in November 2012 alleging her children's First Amendment rights were violated by the book's removal. On January 15, 2013, the book was reinstated without restrictions and the school district agreed to pay $15,000 in attorneys' fees for the lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
