Tennesee bans "Maus"

QuoteMaus is a graphic novel by American cartoonist Art Spiegelman. Serialized from 1980 to 1991, it depicts Spiegelman interviewing his father about his experiences as a Polish Jew and Holocaust survivor.

In high school I gave an oral book report on Elmer Gantry for junior english. Small school 400 students, small town about 7,500.
