Banned Books

A STUDY IN SCARLET

2012

Removed from the Albermarle County (VA) School sixth-grade required reading list because the book casts Mormonism in a negative light. The complaint cited the novel's reference to Mormons as "murderous" and "intolerant," as reason to remove the work. The complaint also alleged that the work unfairly characterized Mormons as murderous kidnappers.
