We applaud the Beulah High School Board for reversing itself and lifting a ban on the book “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” a move it shouldn’t have had to make because it shouldn’t have banned the book in the first place.
The Beulah School Board has voted to ban the book “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” a 1994 best seller about a Georgia murder, from the high school library.
The board voted 4-3 Thursday to remove the copy of the book by John Berendt, which was made into a 1997 movie directed by Clint Eastwood. The story involves four murder trials and an assortment of Savannah, Ga., characters, including a voodoo priestess and a transvestite.
Beulah vocational agriculture teacher Keith Bohn and Kathy Bohn, a school janitor, asked the school to remove the book after their son brought it home.
