Book-Banning Fever Hits a New Low in a Texas Town

August 14, 2023

At 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 2, when Assistant Principal Danny Guidry walked past the high school library in Granbury, Texas, he saw two figures moving in the darkened interior. “One of the ladies identified herself as Karen Lowery, Board Trustee.”Lowery is indeed a member of the Granbury Independent School District board. Exactly what the two were doing there remains a mystery, and they have failed to respond to requests for comment, as has the school board, the school board president, and the school superintendent. The clerk reported that Lowery displayed her school board ID. “You were completely untruthful when the assistant principal confronted you and told him Dr. Glenn had asked you to come and look at some books,” Herrington noted.
