Books Through Bars Wish List

NYC Books Through Bars is a nonprofit collective that sends free books to incarcerated people across the country. Over the past 20 years, they have sent more than 50,000 packages of books to individuals in state and federal prisons. Books Through Bars currently receives and fulfills over 700 book requests each month. We believe that books have the power to transform people and the way they see the world.  (Video: BK Stories: Book Through Bars Brings Literature To The Incarcerated)
