Petition Tried To Censor Banned Books Week Poster For Being 'Islamophobic'
by Ashley Rae Goldenberg
A graduate student at Valdosta State University launched a short-lived petition to censor an anti-censorship poster because it's "Islamophobic."
The poster, which promotes the American Library Association's Banned Books Week and is available for purchase at the ALA online store, features a woman with a dark complexion holding open a book with "READSTRICTED" on the cover.
Elizabeth McKinstry launched the petition about two weeks ago, but it closed after garnering 328 signatures.
