Little Brother challenged in Florida high school


For the first time, one of my books has been challenged. The students at Booker T Washington High in Pensacola, Florida were to be assigned Little Brother for their summer One School/One Book read. At the last instant -- and over the objections of the head of the English department and the chief librarian -- the principal reversed the previous approval and seems to have cancelled the One School/One Book program outright. My amazing publishers, Tor Books, have volunteered to send 200 copies to the school for the students to read, and I'll participate in a videoconference with the students in the coming school year. Read all about it on Boing Boing.

    This is one of my favorite books of all time and if I had it my way, I'd make it required reading for all students. But its no wonder the inductrination centers of our country would attempt to prevent students from reading it.

    Florida! Home of the morons! I loved that book and it illustrated freedom of thought, so of course this jerk banned it.
