SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah school district is removing two books from libraries after a complaint from a parent. KTVX reports The Washington County School District in Southern Utah will pull the award-winning books “Out of Darkness” and “The Hate U Give.” The first book will come off secondary school shelves and the second will be removed from elementary and intermediate schools. Communications director Steven Dunham says decision comes after committees reviewed the books and found profanity and sexually explicit content. Another Utah school district also pulled books from its shelves amid an increase in similar complaints around the country.
