Welcome to the Books Beyond Bars newsletter!
Here's the inside scoop ...
Books Beyond Bars is thrilled to launch our free newsletter where we offer subscribers a deeper look into our efforts to ensure that individuals incarcerated in New York’s prisons and jails have access to their choice of free reading materials. As you may already know, Books Beyond Bars works like this: incarcerated individuals send us a letter telling us what books they want to read, and we track down those books and send them. The books are theirs to keep forever, share, donate, or whatever they’d like! Since our founding in 2016, we have sent nearly 10,000 books to people incarcerated in more than 50 prisons and jails across New York State. And as you’ll see in future newsletters, the simple gesture of sending someone a book through the mail can make a surprisingly profound and positive impact on their lives. We are a project of the Center for Appellate Litigation, which represents some of New York’s most disenfranchised and vulnerable low-income individuals in post-conviction legal matters.
