Prisoners Literature Project

Meet PLP at the Bay Area Book Fest (or volunteer!)

April 2019  |  Published in Latest News

Prisoners Literature Project will have a space once again at the Bay Area Book Fest in downtown Berkeley on May 4th and 5th.

We’ll be selling some REALLY cool leftover hardback & paperback books (that we can’t send to prisoners) to get money for postage fees, and also giving out bookmarks and pamphlets to tell people about PLP.

Come check us out if you have a chance: https://www.baybookfest.org/

ALSO: if you’re interesting in volunteering on our booth at Bay Area Book Fest, we need help on both days – please email jamieschecter@gmail.com – thanks!
