Trying to Make Sense of the Evolution of the West Bend Library Fiasco

Are you finding it hard to keep track of everything that's been going down with regard to the West Bend Library controversy? Me too. Here are some helpful links:

  • Maria Hanrahan has a nice timeline of Ginny Maziarka's library complaints (but it ends on April 11).
  • We have a post highlighting some of Ginny's confusing/contradictory commentary, especially her repeated claim that this isn't about the gays...
  • Michael Zimmer, a professor at UWM, has a detailed summary of the events, along with related news coverage.
  • And Kristina Smithers took the time to review a number of Ginny's interviews to highlight the number of times she's called for removing books, reclassification, etc.
  • New entry: check out the library's pages on the controversy here.
