Ever really wanted something to read?
Ever thought about how people in prison and jail get books and magazines?
Join Radical Reference for an open meeting/salon on Sunday, March 9 at the NYC AIDS Housing Network in Brooklyn. The topic of the discussion will be book and library access to people in prison. What roles do corrections officials, facility librarians, public libraries, schools, nonprofits, and volunteer-based groups play in getting reading material behind bars?
Representatives from Books Through Bars-NYC, the Prisoners' Reading Encouragement Project (PREP), and Literacy for Incarcerated Teens will be in attendance. Open to all interested people, especially library workers, LIS students, and prison/jail educators.
This discussion will be preceded by a 30-45 minute Radical Reference meeting, which will start at 5:00 sharp.
