LGBT books for children - current issues in the US (and Italy)
"In Texas, the debate over same-sex marriage has spilled out of county courthouses and into public libraries across Dallas-Fort Worth. Dozens of residents in Hood County are demanding that LGBT children's books be banned or removed from the library's children's section. In Plano, a couple of parents have asked the public library to move LGBT books to a different section." (Kera News)

In addition, Italian PEN have just posted a piece, "On the banning of children's books in Venice", which reports on a ban of 49 children’s books.
