Castillo Theater will host a book signing award winning playwright, JE Franklin. The author will sign copies of his best-selling memoir, "To Break every Yoke", from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The book will also be available for purchase.

"To BreaK Every Yoke" includes four works about freedom: breaking free, staying free, and helping others to freedom. A college student travels south to do her part in making Dr. King's dream of freedom for everyone a reality; a mother struggles for over two decades to free her blind son from bondage; a white man finds himself entrapped in the racial laws of the nation's One-Drop Theory; a high school drop-out tries to break free from negative family forces to pursue her dream of being a dancer.

J. E. Franklin is an American playwright, best known for her play, Black Girl, which was later made into a 1972 feature film.
