Barnes & Noble, the Freedom to Read Foundation, the Association of University Presses, the American Association of School Librarians, and Freedom to Learn Advocates have filed an amici curiae brief in support of a motion for a preliminary injunction against Texas’s HB 900 “sexual rating” law, also known as the READER Act, which is scheduled to go into effect September 1. A group consisting of BookPeople, Austin, Tex.; the Blue Willow Bookshop, Houston, Tex.; the American Booksellers Association; the Association of American Publishers; the Authors Guild; and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund filed suit last month, asking for preliminary and permanent injunctions against the law, which they call “the Book Ban.”
