LA LISTA DE LIBROS CENSURADOS POR SARAH PALIN

Hoy leyendo El País me he enterado de que la candidata a vicepresidenta por el Partido Republicano de los Estados Unidos, Sarah Palin, quiso censurar una serie de libros que le parecían ofensivos, de la biblioteca pública de sus ciudad (Wasilla), cuando era alcaldesa de ésta (1996). La bibliotecaria Mary Ellen Emmons se negó rotundamente a cualquier tipo de censura y fué despedida meses más tarde.

 

Esta lista aparece publicada en Librarian.net, y aunque algunos libros no concuerdan con los hechos, por su fecha de publicación (Harry Potter), posiblemente se acercaba bastante a la que se le ocurrió en su momento a esta retrógrada señora:
