(Reuters) – Up to 150 students at a Missouri high school that ordered “Slaughterhouse-Five” pulled from its library shelves can get a free copy of the novel, courtesy of the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library, library officials said on Thursday.
The Republic School Board had order Mr. Vonnegut’s novel and Sarah Ockler’s “Twenty Boy Summer” removed from the schools libraries and from curriculum at its April 18th meeting in response to a complaint by local resident Wesley Scroggins calling on the district to stop using textbooks and other materials, “that create false conceptions of American history and government or that teach principles contrary to Biblical morality and truth.”
