Fond du Lac School District Reconsideration Committee Votes to Keep Another Book on the Library Shelves

Link to June 15 Fond du Lac Reporter article.

Excerpt: The book, "Get Well Soon," by Julie Halpern — recounting a teenager's days in a mental hospital — will remain on the library shelf at Theisen Middle School.

Fond du Lac School District Reconsideration Committee members voted unanimously Monday afternoon to make no changes regarding the book's status.

Ann Wentworth, a parent who requested the book be removed from the library, said she was not surprised by the outcome of the official hearing
