BPC Bulletin: Raina Telgemeier's Drama
January 18, 2019
The Ottawa Catholic School Board has decided to return Raina Telgemeier’s Drama to elementary school library shelves.
Earlier this month, the school board had removed copies of the book because some parents had complained.
Drama tells a tale about a student who wants to be part of her middle-school theatre production. The book also depicts two boys who are attracted to one another and share an onstage kiss.
