RCAS postpones decision on select books
After lengthy discussion on Tuesday, the board voted to have the district’s legal experts look at the issue before taking a final vote. The books are considered surplus property, but some people have various issues with their content.
The books include “How Beautiful We Were,” a novel written by Imbolo Mbue.
The publisher, Penguin Random House, says it’s a story about a “Fearless young woman from a small African village who starts a revolution against an American oil company.”
Other titles include “Fun Home” by Alsion Bechdel, “Perks of Being a Wallflower” by Stephen Chbosky, the novel “Girl, Woman, Other” by Bernadine Evaristo, and “The Circle” by Dave Eggers.
