I found out something even more interesting. While searching for a picture to put on my blog, I found one that had blacked out "ass" in the title. I clicked on the page, and it took me to the National Coalition Against Censorship's website. Apparently, last September, Meg Medina was supposed to go to Cumberland Middle School to speak at an anti-bullying event there. The school board decided her book was too inappropriate, and despite her saying that she would be focusing not on language but on the book's message, she was still aske
d not to come to the school. Really? Are we really still doing this people??!?!?!?!?!
Here is Meg's blog on the matter: http://megmedina.com/2013/09/04/author-uninvited-a-school-decides-im-trouble/
