Inspired by Piper Kerman‘s prison memoir, Orange is the New Black, Word Books has created a way for readers to share books with prisoners.
You can donate to Books Through Bars directly from the Word Books website. Check it out:
Books Through Bars sends quality reading material to prisoners and encourages creative dialogue on the criminal justice system, thereby educating those living inside and outside of prison walls. Based on their books wanted guidelines, we’ve created a list of books you can purchase through us to donate. Just choose “Pick up in store,” and write BOOKS THROUGH BARS in the comments.
