Sir Arthur Conan Doyles Sherlock Holmes stories have appealed to generations — but on Thursday the Albemarle County School Board in Virgina voted to remove the detectives A Study in Scarlet from sixth-grade reading lists, the Charlottesville Daily Progress reports, because it is, as the board reported, age-inappropriate. But as the Los Angeles Times notes, “The two gory murders werent the problem. The trouble was the way the book portrays Mormonism.”
