Abstract

Curt Evans filed a challenge to have "Famous All Over Town" removed from the Toledo High School Library. He and 6 committee members reviewed the work; the committee voted that the profanity was in context of the characters. Evans hopes this will remind people to reevaluate the standards for books in the high school collection.
