Discussion of controversial book continues

By On Your Side Newsroom. CREATED Apr 7, 2014

 Ever since On Your Side first broke the news about the controversy over a book in Meridian, the story has attracted national attention.  It's a dispute over Sherman Alexie's semi-autobiographical "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian."


A grandmother asked the Meridian School District to ban it.  After a heated hearing, the school board is still trying to decide what to do.  On Your Side’s Don Nelson spoke with the Idaho Statesman's Bill Roberts about it.
