RECALL : The Jefferson Lies by David Barton

August 13, 2012

Here we go again.  Publisher Thomas Nelson, owned now by HarperCollins, has recalled all copies of The Jefferson Lies : Exposing the Myths You’ve Always Believed about Thomas Jefferson by David Barton, for inaccuracies and “misinterpretations.”  Here is the story from PW.

All copies have been made unholdable and non-floating. When they land at your branch, please send to Service Center and put in Review status.  Again emails will be going out to customers who were on the holds queue.  Fortunately, this time there were only five copies and 9 holds on one print edition. Again the PAC will show no available copies.


Thank you for your help!
