“Catcher” to remain in school libraries

Crossville Chronicle – “A motion to remove the novel The Catcher in the Rye from the school system failed to pass the Cumberland County Board of Education after the motion’s support was removed.

Jim Blalock, 8th District representative, said, “We have a book that is offensive that may or may not be used in our school system named ‘The Catcher in the Rye.’ I would like to have that book removed from the Cumberland County School System and it not be used.”
