Banned Books 2016 – Jean Has Two Moms (Jean a deux mamans)

Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.


Banned by the Venice (Italy) mayor along with 48 other children’s books from the city’s preschool libraries. Most of the books – destined for the city’s 28 nursery schools and kindergartens – never actually got to the libraries and are still packed up in boxes in various municipal offices. After an outcry – from residents, authors, publishers, librarian associations, and even Amnesty International – he whittled his list of banned books to just two.
