Q: What do these books have in common? 

  • “Two Grooms on a Cake: The Story of America’s First Gay Wedding,”
  • “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters”
  • “Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy”
  • “Asterix the Gladiator”

A: They’re all targets of complaints from Vancouver Public Library visitors on a list of 17 challenges to books and one CD from the start of 2022 to the middle of 2023. 

The culture war between left and right has come to libraries, which are working to uphold the freedom to read, a cornerstone of democracy.

Plus commentary, the Virtual Nanaimo Bar award to a difference maker, and Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
