VA school board overturns temporary book ban

ACCOMACK COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - Two books that were temporarily pulled from school libraries in Accomack County will be returned.

School officials say "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and "To Kill a Mockingbird" were initially pulled after a parent filed a complaint last week about racial slurs found in both books.

School policy dictates the books be temporarily removed while a complaint is reviewed.

However, The Accomack County School Board has voted to permanently reinstate the books.
