It Isn't All Fun And Games

This past week, Mackenzie Phillip's memoir, High On Arrival, came out with the bombshell allegations of a ten-year sexual relationship with her father, the musician John Phillips.

Today, director Roman Polanski was arrested in Switzerland on an outstanding international warrant dating back to 1978, when he pled guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, a 13 year old.

Pop culture isn't all fun and games.

How up to date are your resources for victims of sexual abuse, assault, and incest?

How easy are they to find on your online catalog?

Do you have resources for victims on your website? If someone searched "incest" on your website, would they find information about organizations or get a "no results" reply?

These books often go missing; do you periodically look at your shelves to see what needs replacement copies?
