a contentious summer reading list

This is in the “still sorting it out” status at the moment, but perhaps other readers have more information. School Library Journal reports that the DC Public Schools Summer Reading list has been amended to remove the GLBT titles that were on it. Apparently this was first reported on the Yahoo Groups LEZBRIAN list and then posted to the ALA-glbrtr list (little tough to navigate, but click “I am not a spammer” then reload that URL) where it got some attention. The “final” lists are supposed to be out on the 26th, it will be interesting to see if there’s any resolution to this in the meantime.
