The war on books rages on as Polk County District calls for 16 books to be banned from public schools for containing “objectionable materials.” 

Two Boys Kissing” by David Levithan is one of these books; a novel that is both a “celebration of equality” and a “memorial to a lost generation.”

Polk County Public Schools Superintendent Frederick Heid said the district’s plan is to review 16 books that County Citizens Defending Freedom, a conservative political group, said are “age inappropriate and hypersexualize children, violating numerous Florida Statutes," according to The Ledger. The plan will take at least 14 weeks to finish once two review committees have been established.
