The Iowa Standard labeled “Let’s Talk About It” as perhaps the most perverse book in Iowa libraries. But it is in one less library after Waukee Northwest High School pulled the title.

The book’s presence created all kinds of concerns for parents within the district.

After some meetings and conversations, the book was pulled out of the school library.

This can be considered a victory for parents concerned with pornographic materials in school libraries. And an encouragement as well.

Keep standing up. Keep speaking out. Work with your local school officials and follow the process. Shed light on these materials being in school libraries.

Trust that the people in power to make decisions will make the right decision if they have the right information.

“Let’s Talk About It” does not belong in libraries where it is accessible to children without parental guidance.

This is a definite step in the right direction. This by no means is a “book ban,” it is an exercise of standards. This book clearly doesn’t meet the standards required to be inside a school library. And now, it’s gone.
