Debates about book censorship and selection are far-reaching and ongoing, however little research has lingered in the spaces of irresolvable tension within these debates, and specifically the debates that focus on novels read in school. In anMoreDebates about book censorship and selection are far-reaching and ongoing, however little research has lingered in the spaces of irresolvable tension within these debates, and specifically the debates that focus on novels read in school. In an intertextual analysis of literary theory and editorial-blog responses to a recent debate about the suitability of Margaret Atwoods The Handmaids Tale as a high school text, the author works to broaden and trouble understandings of what it means to read this novel in school.

The online forum for discussion is a unique space that offers new and different insights into an age-old conversation. Weaving online reader responses to the Handmaids Tale debate with a large body of research that struggles with our complicated relationship with reading, this book strives to add complexity and depth to an often-polarizing issue.
