In 1906, the Charlton Public Library of Charlton, Massachusetts banned Mark Twain's "Eve's Diary" and in 2011, they voted it back into the library. Illustrations of a naked Eve (of famed couple Adam and) were the cause of the banning. Twain himself took notice of "the freaks of the Charlton Library" as he called them in a 1907 letter. The un-banning is part of the library's Banned Books Week display that starts next week. NYTimes

"Hey, Jimmy, we got a book here on the suggestion list."
"Oh, yeah, what is it?"
"Eve's Diary by Mark Twain."
"Twain? Don't freaking think so. Man still owes my great-grandma $1."
"I'm going over your head, Jimmy. It ain't right. This ain't your library."
"Oh God, I'm a monster, what have I become? Let it back in."End Scene
