NCAC's Kids' Right to Read Project organized and sent a letter, cosigned by eight other organizations, to the Watauga County School District reconsideration committee regarding a challenge to Isabel Allende's "House of the Spirits." The book, which is included in North Carolina's state curriculum, has been taught for several years to 10th grade honors English at Watauga High School.

The author herself has chimed in in defense of her work, as has North Carolina poet laureate Joseph Bathanti.
