This week is Banned Books Week, an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Across the country there are discussions about schools, libraries, and communities banning books for their incendiary content. They shockingly include books like The Color Purple and A Wrinkle in Time, among many other titles. 

Roxanne says "Its important for us to take this time and understand how inappropriate it is to ban books and we need to become engaged if we run into a school or a library or a set of circumstances that's wants to do that..."
