Hello everyone. I’m Nicole, the new-ish Freakonomics assistant.

A few weeks ago, Dubner blogged about Chicago School District 214, where the campaign of one board member to ban Freakonomics (among other dangerous books such as Kate Chopin’s The Awakening) was successfully thwarted. The publisher, William Morrow, happily gave away 50 signed copies to students in appreciation.

Someone commented that it would be nice to be able to donate a copy of Freakonomics to the District 214 school libraries, now that the students’ right to read the book has been secured.

If anyone would like to send a book, the following are names and addresses for all six District 214 librarians. You can also send one from here or here.
