A new article from American Libraries Magazine (part of the ALA!) on prison book programs features the PLP.

This new piece, written by Kaitlin Throgmorton, features a prominent mention/link to the Prisoners Literature Project & a quote from PLP volunteer Celia, and starts off with this poignant note:
