A Follow Up Story on The Devil's Storybookand The Devil: Great Mysteries, Opposing Viewpoints, were checked out from the Chestnut Ridge Middle School library by David O'Quinn, 14,an eighth-grader, this past fall.
A local businessman is organizing a candlelight prayer vigil to rally support for a group that wants restrictions placed on occult-related books in township school libraries.
"It's not a protest," said Martino Cartier, 28, who is planning the event for Sunday at Washington Lake Park. Cartier ownsMartino's Salon XI, a local beauty salon.
The group is not asking for an outright ban, but wants the school district to create a policy requiring younger students to get their parents' permission before checking out books with occult references, said Tahir Mella, O'Quinn's stepfather.
