WRITERS' VOICES: SELECTED FROM "BORROWED TIME: AN AIDS MEMOIR"

2012

Pulled from circulation at the Cheatham (TN) Middle School. The anthology contains a selection from Paul Monette's Borrowed Time: An AIDS Memoir, chronicling how Monette coped with a Lover's death from AIDS. The book talks frankly about past promiscuity and uses profanity. School policy was changed after the complaint. The previous policy kept challenged books available in the library until two weeks after the review process was complete. Now the book is removed and a decision is made within forty-eight hours.
