The Day They Came to Arrest the Book by Nat Hentoff


Who would have believed that The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn could cause the worst crisis in the history of George Mason High School? Certainly not Barney Roth, editor of the school paper. But when a small but vocal group of students and parents decide that the book is racist, sexist, and immoral--and should be removed from reading lists and the school library--Barney takes matters into his own hands.

12:00 - 1:00 - Moderated Book Discussion


The discussion will be moderated by the Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach Book Goddess, Tina Maura.
