Greenville librarian says decision to ban graphic novel wasn’t made lightly

Beverly James, executive director of the Greenville County Library, says she stands by her decision to remove copies of 'Neonomicon' from library shelves.

  • In a wool suit, nicely accessorized, sitting in the boardroom of the Hughes Main Library, she looks every bit the librarian she is. She’s also a woman who is standing up to a national backlash among organizations that fight book banning and from fans of award-winning author Alan Moore, who say her decision to take his graphic novel out of circulation at the Greenville County Library is nothing short of censorship.
