                On the Harry Potter issue, to my knowledge the only
controversy surrounding the series in NH is the use of witchcraft.
                Our discussion group brought up the interesting fact that
the "audience" of today is very different from the audience for whom Dickens
wrote.

                Would Peyton Place be banned today while students are
reading Amy Tan and Toni Morrison?

                        I have some questions regarding "Song of Solomon".
Do you feel that this
                        would be an appropriate novel to add to a high
school reading list? I found
                        it a very long read and some of the content no
appropriate for high school
                        students. I would be hard pressed to recommend this
to any of my students.
                        Please let me know how you feel about this story.
