Happy Thanksgiving to all from the PLP! And here’s our holiday message – please give to those behind bars who desperately need books! Take a moment to donate – http://www.prisonlit.org/donate/ – to the Prisoners Literature Project, our all-volunteer non-profit.

 

Your generosity helps put good books directly into the hands of incarcerated people around the country. The PLP is now receiving more book requests than ever – and anything you kindly give makes a huge difference!

In addition, when holiday shopping, we hope you’ll support these local Bay Area bookstores. Each one has kindly helped the PLP get more good books to needy prisoners this year: Our longtime partner, the Bound Together Bookstore on Haight St. in San Francisco, continues to fight the good fight. In Berkeley, both Moe’s Books and Pegasus Books have stepped up to help.

Oakland’s Walden Pond Bookstore and Marcus Books provide us with discounts, as do Aardvark Books and Green Apple Books in San Francisco.

Please visit these stores — and tell them we sent you!

We use your kindly donated money for postage for the 1000+ book packages we send to prisoners monthly. But the PLP has also been making strides in buying (discounted!) requested books.
