CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

To quietorchid for the upcoming Banned Books Challenge.

Ten years after its publication, Beloved was banned from AP English classes at Eastern High School in Louisville, Kentucky, because of the book’s mention of bestiality, racism and sex. The Coeur D’Alene School District in Idaho has also challenged the book and required students to have parental permission to read it. People have objected to the novel’s violence, the supernatural and infanticide.
