West Valley School Holding Meeting On Sherman Alexie Book
The West Valley School District is holding a meeting tonight with parents in the west asking the school board to remove an award winning book from its reading list.
Parents say Sherman Alexie's book, "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian," contains sexual references and profanity that is inappropriate for high school students.
The school says the book gives students insight into what life is like on an indian reservation, and is trying to encourage students to read more young adult novels like it.
That meeting is at six at the West Valley High School Library at 6:00 pm
