BABFlogowithChronLogoCome celebrate books with the Prisoners Literature Project at the Bay Area Book FestivalHeld in downtown Berkeley over the June 4 & 5 weekend, the Book Fest will feature hundreds of authors speaking, and dozens of panel discussions, publishers, and book sellers . . . plus the PLP!

Drop by the PLP booth, meet our trusty volunteer crew, and buy a book or two to help us get free paperbacks to prisoners around the country.

(We’ll be holding court at the fest all weekend; look for us at the corner of Allston Way & Milvia St., in front of Berkeley’s old downtown post office.)

It’s going to be a great weekend for book lovers of all sorts — so please join us!
