Ivy uproar

No, the story about a Harvard sophomore who copied passages from a popular novel.

The downfall of an aspiring teen novelist makes for good copy, and well over 500 headlines turned up on one quick internet search. But what about the influential professor who won awards and fellowships, and influenced the thoughts of countless readers, with a book that contains fabricated material?
