Golden Compass Spurs Complaint, Board Enjoys Book

the-amber-spyglass.gif

So, there’s this policy: books in schools and public libraries are up for debate. If a parent or someone has a complaint about a book, that complaint is reviewed by committee. Recently in Toronto, a panel was formed to investigate whether The Golden Compass should stay on the shelves of a school’s library. The head of the committee is quoted as saying “I’m really enjoying (the book).”

You know what I love? The way that committees have to be formed to investigate idiotic complaints (this book has been on the shelves since 1995–it wasn’t bad then…what make the parent pissed now?) but it’s formed of people who really love books. Woo!
