In Cold Blood

2012

Some Glendale (CA) Unified School District officials and parents attempted to block a request by a high school English teacher to add the text to the district's advanced English curriculum because the nonfiction book was "too violent for a young audience;" the school board voted 4-0 to approve the book for Advanced Placement students.

2001

Banned, but reinstated in a English Advanced Placement class in Savannah (GA) after a parent complained that it contained sex, violence, and profanity.


Held at Marshall (Drinko Library - HV6533.K3 C3)
