Pensacola Prison Books In Urgent Need Of Solidarity

Prison Books Collective May 5, 2014


For those who were not aware, Open Books–a non-profit bookstore which houses the Prison Book Project–was hurt very badly in the recent floods in Pensacola, Florida.

We also lost a considerable amount of the stock for the Prison Book Project.


If you are not familiar with us, all of the proceeds at Open Books goes directly to fund the Prison Book Project. The Prison Book Project, which runs out of our store, has been in operation for 14 years. We have survived several hurricanes, flooding, and numerous economic calamities.
