Scholastic book fairs have sparked a lot of controversy this year for banning books that focus on topics related to race, gender, and sexuality. Parents, scholars, and writers from across the U.S. are understandably concerned about this censorship and have called for the reversal of the policy. Despite Scholastic’s initial commitment to diversity, they have yet to take action on this issue– prompting some to question their true values. The protests have illuminated an important conversation about how young readers are exposed to different perspectives.
