Banned Books 2020 – Freedom is an Inside Job: Owning Our Darkness and Our Light to Heal Ourselves and the World

Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.


Salbi’s memoir ranges from her childhood in Iraq to an arranged marriage in America to founding an organization to help women all over the world. One sexual scene in the book prompted a patron of the Deschutes (OR) Public Library district to request a label calling out adult content. Retained, not labeled.
