Updated: Jul 31, 2023

Wyoming Family Alliance for Freedom believes in parental control without government overreach. Banning or complicating access to books is not a Wyoming value. Its time for Wyomingites who value liberty to stand up to those who would infringe on the rights of others in pursuit of their own political ideology.

People who advocate for the removal or restriction of a book have rarely read it, relying instead on out-of-context excerpts feed to them from out-of-state groups with political motives to vilify educators and harm public education.

We encourage you to read this review from one of your neighbors, and read the book in question yourself. We believe you will find, as our professional librarians have already established- that the book has merit and value when taken as a whole.



Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

Reviewed by Lindsey Hanlon, Cheyenne, WY

The story of both the dangers of getting what you wish for, and the possibilities created by stepping outside of norms. You rarely get tales of Faustian bargains with a female protagonist, and I think that added a unique component to this story. If you like this book, I suggest The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, Light from Uncommon Stars by Ryka Aoki, The Once and Future Witches by Alix E Harrow, and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
