'A Sense Of Humanity': Prison Book Project Celebrates 20 Years
By JENNIE MCKEON/WUWF• DEC 28, 2019
On a recent Sunday morning inside Open Books, a handful of volunteers are busy moving throughout the store trying to fulfill requests for books to send to Florida prisoners.
One volunteer looks through a shelf stacked with old westerns — a popular request — while another grabs a title from the science fiction section. The stacks are taken to a room in the back where two more volunteers are diligently packing up the books to be sent to prisoners around the state.
