  • 2018’s latest ‘thank you’ art & prisoner letters

    Some beautiful ‘thank you’ art & a separate thank you letter from prisoners we sent books to – thanks to all of our supporters!

  • PLP’s regular Sunday volunteering hours now 2pm to 6pm!

    Apologies for the back and forth on this, but the Prisoners Literature Project’s open Sunday volunteering hours are now 2pm to 6pm, starting Sunday, December 3rd, 2017 going forwards.

  • New art from grateful prisoners!

    We’ve been sending out a lot of ‘how to draw’ guides to prisoners recently by request – here’s some neat thank-you pictures we received last week!

  • A thank you poem to remember!

    Here’s a wonderful ‘thank you’ poem from a grateful prisoner. It’s addressed to Prisoners Literature Project & sister bookstore Bound Together Books, which is the address prisoners have to mail to get a reply from us!

About the Prisoners Literature Project

The Prisoners Literature Project is an all-volunteer grassroots group that sends hundreds of free book packages to needy prisoners in the United States every month.

Please consider donating to the PLP or volunteering your time (if you live in the Bay Area, CA!) to help our prison book program answer letters from prisoners who write us from all over the United States.
