Lula Dean's little library of banned books : a novel / Kirsten Miller.

"A BRACING AND WILDLY ENTERTAINING SATIRE ABOUT A SMALL SOUTHERN TOWN, A PITCHED BATTLE OVER BANNED BOOKS, AND A LITTLE LENDING LIBRARY THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING. Lula Dean is on a mission. The resident busybody of Troy, Georgia, is hell-bent on removing "pornography and propaganda" from the town's libraries. Even her lifelong nemesis, school-board president (and former cheerleading captain) Beverly Underwood, can't seem to stop her. To prove she has nothing against good, wholesome literature, Lula builds her own little lending library in her front yard for her neighbors to enjoy. Filled with classics like The Southern Belle's Guide to Etiquette, 101 Cakes to Bake for Your Family, and The Art of the Deal, Lula's library is an instant success! Or so she thinks. What Lula doesn't know is that a local troublemaker has secretly restocked the little library with banned books cleverly disguised in the jackets of Lula's "wholesome" reads. Literary classics, gay romance, Black history, Judy Blume novels, books of witchy spells -- all just waiting to be discovered. As the townsfolk borrow books from Lula's banned-book library, they find their lives transformed in hilarious, profound, and unforeseen ways. But when the truth about the library comes out, the showdown that's been brewing between Beverly and Lula will roil the whole town...and change it forever." -- Provided by dustjacket.
