It turns out at least one part of publishing has a diverse slate of authors: The books most likely to be pulled from school and library shelves.

The American Library Association on Monday released its annual list of the 10 books receiving the most complaints from parents, educators and others in the local community. Sherman Alexie's prize-winning, autobiographical novel of school life, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, ranked No 1, followed by Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel Persepolis and the picture book about two male penguins raising a baby penguin, Peter Parnell's and Justin Richardson's And Tango Makes Three.

Others on the list include Toni Morrison's debut novel, The Bluest Eye, Khaled Hosseini's million-selling novel The Kite Runner and Jaycee Dugard's best-selling memoir about her kidnapping, A Stolen Life.
