It's a page-turner in Cleburne that is building toward a climax for Monday's school board meeting.
Pillars of the Earth, a novel by Ken Follett, has been on the required reading list for honors English at Cleburne High School for years, but a group of concerned parents have recently objected to passages in the book that they believe are too sexual and violent in nature. They believe the book should be removed from the required-reading list, but not from the library.
Supporters of the book have rallied for its continued inclusion on the required reading list. With strong feelings on both sides and people prepared to offer their opinions, the plot thickens for Monday's 6 p.m. Cleburne school board meeting.
