Chris Crutcher says he is “shocked” a book he wrote was removed from school libraries in Kershaw County. In an open letter to Kershaw County School District (KCSD) students published today, Crutcher said he was shocked that his novel, “Angry Management,” was removed not only from the district’s libraries, but the district’s summer reading list after receiving a complaint from one parent. The district removed “Angry Management” from libraries and the reading list two weeks ago in response to Camden High School parent Douglas Berry’s concern about the number of expletives included in the book.
