Rapid City School District administrators intercepted 355 books an educator committee had requested for a 12th grade English class. The district says the books contain explicit sexual material inappropriate for school use. Now the school board will have to decide what to do with the books.
We spend the hour talking about literature, education, and the First Amendment. Our guests include Jonathan Friedman with PEN America, author Dave Eggers, whose book "The Circle" is one of the prohibited titles, and members of the Rapid City school community.
