Sexually explicit graphic novels were removed from the shelves of the Valley City Barnes County Public Library after a Times Record investigation into their placement among graphic novels and comics on the LGBTQ shelf in the Young Adults section.

I spoke to both the city commissioner and the county commissioner, but no one knew about the book – Let’s Talk About It, artist and semi-autobiographical webcomic “Oh Joy, Sex” by Erica Moen. You are the author of “Toys” – or did not know its content, including graphics. Illustrations of sexual acts, “kinks”, descriptions of sexting, masturbation, etc.
