When a small bookstore in Asheville, North Carolina, received a call asking if they could take in 22,000 books rejected by a Florida school district, they felt overwhelmed. However, Firestorm Books ultimately agreed to take in the books, which were banned due to their content on race, gender identity, and sexual orientation. The books, part of Perfection Learning's 'Essential Voices' collection for elementary school students, are now being sent to anyone who requests them, including many back to Florida.
