247_books_to_prisonersLast month, Boston-based NPR reporter David Freudberg flew out to do a story about the Prisoners Literature Project. His 20-minute piece about the PLP — featuring our volunteers Gina, Alex, Eric, and Steffi — will air 7pm tomorrow (Sunday 24th) night on KPFA (91.4 FM).

 Thanks so much to NPR and David for spreading the word about the Prisoners Literature Project — and the dire situation of incarcerated Americans — to a national audience!
 
There’s more info about the program on the Human Media website.
