Texas Prison Bans “Where’s Waldo” Books
The children’s book “Where’s Waldo? Santa Spectacular” is among the 10,000 books banned from Texas prisons, but Adolf Hitler’s autobiography “Mein Kampf” makes the cut.
The Texas Department of Criminal Justice provided to The Dallas Morning News the list of banned publications and the more than 248,000 works that inmates are allowed to read.
Alice Walker’s “The Color Purple,” a Pulitzer-Prize winner for fiction and the 2005 best-seller “Freakonomics” also are not allowed. But two books by former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke are OK.
