A parent complained about a library book. E. Bridgewater is going to keep it on the shelf.
During her address to the East Bridgewater School Committee at their regularly scheduled meeting on Jan. 24, Superintendent Elizabeth Legault said a parent had expressed concerns to her about a book their child found in the school's library. Although the topic wasn't listed on the meeting's agenda, Legault wanted to bring the issue to the committee's attention. She said her team is looking into it and will update the committee at a later meeting. The discussion was brief, and few details were provided at the time. After multiple requests from The Enterprise, Legault said the book was "Red, White & Royal Blue" by Casey McQuiston — a young adult romance novel following a gay relationship between the sons of the U.S. president and British royal family.
