    "A Pulitzer Prize-winning novel from 1987 has suddenly become the hottest topic in the Virginia governor's race, as Republican Glenn Youngkin charged that Democrat Terry McAuliffe blocked parents from protecting their children from explicit classroom material, while McAuliffe responded by raising the specter of book-banning," the Washington Post reports.

     

    "With only a week to go until Election Day, Youngkin released an ad Monday featuring Fairfax County resident Laura Murphy, who waged a battle against 'Beloved' in schools beginning in 2013 after her son - a high school senior at the time - said it gave him nightmares while reading it for an advanced placement literature class."
