Hills Like White Elephants (short story from The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway)


Pulled from a Litchfield (NH) Campbell High School elective course classroom after parents voiced their concerns about a short-stories unit called "Love/Gender/Family Unit" that dealt with subject matters including abortion, cannibalism, homosexuality, and drug use. The parents said the stories promoted bad behavior and a "political agenda" and they shouldn't be incorporated into classroom teachings. The Campbell High School English curriculum adviser eventually resigned.

Held at Marshall (Drinko Library, PS3515.E37 A15 1987).
