Decide for yourself.

In response to the banning of the book at Republic High School in Missouri, the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library is offering free copies of it to students.

The Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library is asking interested pupils at Republic High School in Missouri to drop it an email requesting a free copy of Slaughterhouse-Five after an anonymous donor provided it with 150 copies of the book. “We think it’s important for everyone to have their First Amendment rights. We’re not telling you to like the book … we just want you to read it and decide for yourself,” said Julia Whitehead, the library’s executive director, in a note on its website entitled “stop the madness”.
