While driving to work this morning, I heard a story on the radio that said the Beaumont, Texas school district had received a complaint from one parent about the book Friday Night Lights and decided to remove it from all the Beaumont schools.
This is especially relevant considering that this week is Banned Books Week.
To listen to the radio story, go toTexas Public Radio and scroll down to Show #474, September 25, 2009.
Read Free People Read Freely, the ACLU's annual report on banned and challenged books.
