Three weeks ago, the National Coalition Against Censorship heard that the bestselling erotic novel had been unceremoniously pulled from library shelves in Brevard County, FL, supposedly at the prerogative of one individual.
There had been no complaints by patrons–on the contrary, many were waiting to get their hands on a copy of the book that has been a crazy hit, largely with women.
Friday, Brevard County announced that it would be returning the books to the libraries. The Chair of the County Commission, Chuck Nelson said they received a lot of feedback in support of the book:
“I never want to be in a position where we appear to be censoring or banning books.”
