Marjane Satrapi speaks out about Chicago Public School ban of Persepolis

Here is an informative article and multiple links about the story from the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

I have not been following the story quite as closely as I should be, because it is a crunch grading time for me, but I think it bears repeating that the only two places to ban this book are the US and Iran. Strange bedfellows, no?

If you should not know who Marjane Satrapi is or are unfamiliar with Persepolis, one of the more respected graphic novels and frequently taught in American public schools, check out these links to my reviews of books 1 and 2.
