An Inclusive Litany

8/18/00

At Spotswood High School in Virginia, Jeff Newton posted a list of 60 books that have been banned, including The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Color Purple, and Of Mice and Men. After a parent complained, Principal Jim Slye told him to take the list down because it wasn't part of any class curriculum, and some of the books on the list hadn't been approved by school officials.
