Another Huge Book Donation From World Book Night!

wbn2013We are thrilled to announce that for the second year in a row World Book Night has donated hundreds of copies of some of our favorite books.  The books come from their 2013 selection, which include The Handmaid’s TaleFahrenheit 451, The Alchemist, Good Omens, and many more. We are so excited to send these out far and wide, and wanted to share the excitement with all of y’all. So, join your nerdy comrades at the Prison Books Collective on Sundays to help us stay on top of our backlog.

We at the Prison Books Collective are delighted to put these books into the hands of prisoners. We will continue to put great works of fiction into the hands of prisoners, as well as provide quality resources to help enable prisoners to self-educate, self-organize, and challenge the roots of their conditions. If you’re able, please consider helping us by becoming a monthly sustainer of our work or making a one-time donation. Your generosity not only feeds our work, it is a part of it. Pooling resources is resistance in action.
