Banned Books

Bookmans, an independent bookstore with six locations in Arizona, created this video for the 2012 Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out. During Bookmans' 36-year fight against censorship, the shattered light bulb emerged as a powerful symbol of the importance of free speech.

In this video, combining passages from banned books read by customers and employees, Bookmans created a statement about how books inform, engage and inspire the light in each of us.
