2 Groups Urge Brevard Library to Restock Racy Book
TITUSVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida and an anti-censorship group have sent the Brevard County Commission a letter urging the restock of a controversial erotic novel on its library shelves.
Earlier this month, the Brevard County Library put 19 copies of the book "Fifty Shades of Grey" on the shelves, then pulled the novel after reading reviews about it.
Librarians in at least four Florida counties have declined to buy the book, even though hundreds of people have requested it.
The New York Times bestseller is a romance novel heavy on descriptions of bondage and wild sex.
In the letter to officials, the ACLU and the National Coalition Against Censorship say that "Fifty Shades" is no more erotic than other novels currently on the Brevard library's shelves.
