We’re happy to announce that an updated manual on how to start a prison books group is now available for download and printing. Our collective has been talking about putting out this zine for years and we are thrilled to finally be releasing it. This manual is designed to help the reader start and maintain a prison book program. It is not meant to be taken as an absolute, but as friendly advice when devising your own policies and procedures. We hope that this humble contribution will help other prison books groups get started and expand the important work of sending political, legal, and self-educational resources to prisoners. You can download it on our Resources page, or by clicking here.

We can see by your intelligence report that you’re curious and confused about the nature of this blog in particular, blogs in general, and possibly the entire Internet.
This is the Prison Books Collective Blog.
We link to lots of articles and announcements that we find relevant about prisons, policing and your criminal justice system, both locally and beyond.
You may notice we are not many things to which we link or events that we announce.
For instance we aren’t the Catholic Workers, Trianarchy, News and Observer, WRAL, Truth Out, Peter Gelderloos, Playboy, Denver Anarchist Black Cross, SubmediaTV, NPR, Amplify Voices, ThinkProgress, Anarchist News or Aljazeera; in fact the things that we are not go on and on and on.
We also aren’t your scapegoat. But nice try.
until every cage is empty,
the Prison Books Collective bloggers
