"Parents call the cops on teens distributing a banned book" story from Good Reader


Sherman Alexie's book "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" was banned from the curriculum in Idaho town. Students and an indie book store raised enough money to give away 350 copies of the books, for all the 10th graders who were no longer allowed to read it. Then the parents who lobbied for the banning of the book called the police, who didn't udnerstand why they were called and let the give away proceed.
