Blue Springs Keeps "The Giver" on Reading List
Jenne writes "The Blue Springs (MO) school board has rejected an effort to remove Lois Lowry's "The Giver" from the district's eighth-grade reading list. The board voted six to nothing to keep the book. The parents who oppose the book had gone to two committees with their concerns. Both committees decided the book should stay.
"The Giver" won the Newbery Medal for 1994."
