Some parents seek to ban 'The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian'
By Lisa Black, Tribune staff reporter, and Ruth Fuller, special correspondent
But school board President Wayne Sobczak said he doubts the book--"The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" by Sherman Alexie--will be pulled from shelves as some parents wanted.
"I am sensing the book is going to stay because it is age-appropriate," said Sobczak, who said he had also received positive input from parents who read the book.
"I appreciate the parents who came and had concerns," he added. "But the tone and flavor of the book is positive for children this age, and shows someone trying to do the right thing."
