I visited the Women’s Prison Book Project this week, which is housed in the new Boneshaker Books behind Second Moon.  They’re an all volunteer organization that collects and distributes books to women and transgender folks in prisons all over the US.  They’re looking for donated paperback books–their most requested topics are dictionaries (English and Spanish), African American fiction, drug and alcohol recovery, abuse issues, arts and crafts, mysteries, and romance.  They’ve got a donation box outside of Boneshaker Books.  They’re also happy to have volunteers–especially in the summer, they said, when college students aren’t around.
