Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.
Kyra and Phallon Pierce got this murder mystery removed from their 8th grade summer reading list at St. Dominic Catholic School (Quincy, IL) because the original title contained a racial epithet. The twins then realized that the school’s reading list lacked diversity so they worked with legislators to craft Illinois House Bill 3254 which would require any school board using Title I funds to require diversity in reading assignments.
