Hi!

I am not sure if this is the right forum for this so i apologise in advance. I remember reading some where that the State Textbook Committee called for the Diary of Anne Frank to be rejected because its a "real downer."

Please tell me this is an UL.
Thanks

Ann Frank--Diary of a Young girl

For her thirteenth birthday, Anne Frank's parents gave her a diary. "I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support." Just one month later (July 1942), Anne and her family went into hiding to escape from the Nazis. For the next two years, living in a cramped Amsterdam annex, Anne's writings filled two notebooks. To date, more than twenty-five million copies have been printed in fifty-five languages. Various reasons have been used to justify banning Anne Frank's acclaimed diary. In one 1983 incident, four members of the Alabama State Textbook Committee called for its removal because it was a "real downer."

Pet peeve - Not including a book on a particular list of approved or required reading is hardly the same thing as banning that book. If every book not appearing on the AL Textbook Com.'s list of approved reading is regarded as "Banned" then we are going to have a Very long list of banned books.

If you think The Diary of Anne Frank is a downer, try reading Go Ask Alice (the diary of a teenager lured into drug addiction by her so-called "friends") — it's easily the most depressing and disturbing book I've ever read...
