LINCOLN SQUARE — Some Chicago neighborhood bookstores saw a rush on the graphic novel "Persepolis" over the weekend as readers snapped up copies in the wake of a CPS book banning controversy.
"Whatever we had, we sold," reported Suzy Takacs, owner of Lincoln Square's The Book Cellar.
Author Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel series — "Persepolis I," "Persepolis II" and "The Complete Persepolis" — was at the center of an uproar Friday following orders from Chicago Public Schools to remove it from the CPS curriculum for 7th graders.
CPS CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett cited "graphic language and images" in the book, a memoir of the author's childhood in Iran in the 1970s and '80s as she lived through the Islamic Revolution and the war with Iraq.
