Chicago Books to Women in Prison

April 4, 2011

On Sunday afternoons, volunteers of the Chicago Books to Women in Prison meet and read letters sent by women in prisons throughout the country. Chicago BWP fulfills their requests as best they can, sending paperbacks to prisons in Illinois, as well as Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Missouri. This group “is dedicated to offering women behind bars the opportunity for self-empowerment, education, and entertainment that reading provides.” You can find out more about this collective and their annual fundraiser – which takes place next Friday (April 15th) – here and here
