                    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.
