A big thank you and shout out to Haymarket Books and Jordan Flaherty for donating 64 copies of the excellent book Floodlines. Donations like this help us send books inside that are relevant and cutting edge. Our most requested book is the dictionary, but our second most requested type of book is African-American non-fiction.
FLOODLINES: Community and Resistance From Katrina to the Jena Six tells the story of community organizing in New Orleans in the years after Hurricane Katrina, and offers lessons for anyone involved in struggles around housing, education, health care, the prison industrial complex, and more. So having so many copies of this book will certainly be a great way for prisoners to form reading groups and talk about relevant recent history in the Gulf Coast.
We can’t wait to send these in.
Thanks Haymarket Books.
