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:

“More than 2 million people in the United States are incarcerated. Most of those 2 million have extremely limited access to something most of us can’t imagine living without: books.”
