  • PLP thank you letters – early 2021!

    We thought we’d present three recent thank-you letters – so we can pass along the sense of gratitude prisoners have when we’re able to get them books, with your kind help.

  • New initiative: Bay Area book stores support PLP!

    The Prisoners Literature Project is proud to announce a new initiative working with local bookstores in the Bay Area, highlighting books that can be bought for prisoners directly at high-quality independent book stores.

About the Prisoners Literature Project

The Prisoners Literature Project is an inclusive, all-volunteer, grassroots nonprofit whose purpose is to encourage reading, the pursuit of knowledge, and self-determination among incarcerated people. By sending free reading materials to those behind bars, PLP aims to foster learning and critical thinking. We believe that all people have a right to read.

Please consider donating to the PLP or volunteering your time (if you live in the Bay Area, CA!) to help our prison book program answer letters from prisoners who write us from all over the United States.
