Update on Book Banning



The Depew High School board meeting was last night and you can get all the juicy details right here in this article from a local newspaper.

One of the book banners was a Baptist minister who hadn't even read the book. It was mentioned that 97% of the students in the classes had gotten written permission from their parents to read the book. Luckily for the side of reason, many more people showed up in defense if the book and our basic freedoms. The book is now under review by the board.

Think John Green has a bestseller in Buffalo now? Thanks narrow-minded book banners, for selling an awesome book.! Like John said in his video (link to his blog below), shut up and stop condescending to teenagers!
