Brooklyn Librarians: Frey’s a Fiction Writer

bpl.jpgGalleyCat has just recieved an anonymous tip, which we’ve been able to independently confirm, that the Brooklyn Public Library has changed its classification for James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces from its original Dewey decimal number, 362.29 (for nonfiction about drug use and abuse), to FIC—which, yes, means they consider it fiction.
