Book News - Oct. 22, 2009

I fail to understand what could possibly be gained from banning a book. Wouldn't the children of Westminster have a lot more to gain from the greater understanding of the world, the experience and beauty Maya Angelou's work offers? Perhaps Ms. Aherns and the school board would to better to spend their energies EDUCATING and nurturing their children rather than sheltering them from the world.
