Help The Appalachian Prison Book Project

By Harriet Staff

Thanks to a tip from the folks at Poets and Writers, we got word that The Appalachian Prison Book Project has lost funding. But you can help!

From the article:

The Appalachian Prison Book Project, a program that aims to rehabilitate inmates by giving them free books to read, has lost their funding and is looking for book donations. The West Virginia University Department of English is accepting donation on the program’s behalf.

The most sought after books from the program are dictionaries, auto repair manuals, psychology textbooks and fiction. And for security purposes, all donations must be paperback. You can donate by following this link.

The link mentioned can be found here.
