Abstract

Twenty Glendale teachers asked the Glendale School Board to reconsider its decision to ban the book "Horrorgami"; they believed the board did not follow its own procedure when deciding whether the book should be removed. The book was challenged by a parent, and board members objected to the satanic symbols it contains.
