Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.
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.
Banned, but reinstated in a English Advanced Placement class in Savannah (GA) after a parent complained that it contained sex, violence, and profanity.
