911 Book Banned in Ankeny

Extremely Loud Copies of a novel about a boy whose father died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks have been removed from an Ankeny school. A parent had questioned the content of Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.” Assistant Ankeny Superintendent Jill Urich says the novel was removed from ninth-grade classrooms at Northview Middle School because the title hadn’t received school board approval.
