KOMU.com Exclusive: Burning Books in K.C.
According to various news agencies, Tom Wayne, owner and operator of Prospero's Books in midtown Kansas City, MO, has amassed about 20,000 books over the last 10 years that he has not been able to sell. First he tried to give them away, but he had few takers.
In order to get rid of the books, he started burning them.
Paperback Swap is an organization that has created a petition against burning books. It hopes to gather enough signatures to get the books donated so the group can take the books and hand them out to towns along I-70.
