A fight over Forever

Librarians, parents, and staff members are trying to bring Judy Blume\'s Forever back to middle school libraries in a Chicago-area school district after a 4-year absence from the shelves. The leader of the local opposition calls the district "pagan" and says, "The book is harmful ... it shows teens committing sins."

Forever tells the story of a teenage girl\'s first sexual experiences with an orphaned boy wizard. (Wait, scratch that last part.)

Anyway, the full article is in today\'s Chicago Tribune.
