This Sunday
: PLP at Howard Zinn Book Fair!  please drop by!

The Prisoner Literature Project have a table at this Sunday’s Howard Zinn book fair in San Francisco — and PLP volunteer and co-runner Gina will be speaking about our prison book program at 4pm.
Here’s a description if you haven’t heard of the show: “The Howard Zinn Book Fair is an annual celebration of People’s History, Past Present and Future. We gather together authors, zinesters, bloggers and publishers for a day of readings, panel discussions and workshops exploring the value of dissident histories towards building a better future. In the spirit of the late historian Howard Zinn we recognize the stories of the ways that everyday people have risen to propose a world beyond empires big and small.”
Plus there’ll be lots of other speakers, workshops, and social justice organizations (including publishers) in attendance.
So please come by City College (1125 Valencia) this Sunday 11/15 anytime from 10am – 6pm.   Details at: http://howardzinnbookfair.com/
