“Pornographic” Books Back in Clyde-Savannah School Library


The Clyde-Savannah School Board last night voted 6-to-2 to place five books back on the library shelves.

The books, that include sexually explicit material, were removed from the junior and senior high school libraries after Jacob Marchitell, the pastor of Christ Community Church, raised concerns about the books, so the school board voted last month to remove the books.

Two school staff members who disagreed with the books being removed filed an appeal with the state education department to intervene.

The books are: “People Kill People,” “It Ends With Us,” “All Boys Aren’t Blue,” “Jesus Land: A Memoir,” and “Red Hood”

Marchitell says the books are not appropriate for young readers and went as far as to characterize them as “pornographic.”
