Cheshire Book Controversy (3#) -

The book makes it worse?

Some residents of Cheshire, Conn. want to banish
a book from their town's public library which is
about a murder that took place there.

Why would residents want to do that?

One of the rationalizations being used is that they want to protect the feelings of the surviving spouse who still resides there.

It's also possible that some may be trying to protect their real estate values, since the story involves a home invasion.

The library board plans to meet again
Nov. 16th to announce a decision.
