Lesbian Leadership Council approves $2,500 grant!

We want to thank the  Chicago Foundation for Women’s Lesbian Leadership Council for recommending a $2,500 grant to Chicago Books to Women in Prison! We will receive the grant in June. Thank you so much! We are especially touched because this grant was unsolicited. Thank you Lesbian Leadership Council!


    200 packages in the first two weeks of 2018!

    That’s 186 packages of books and 14 blank journals to women across the country. In 2017 we sent 4,690 packages (4,086 packages of books and 604 blank journals). Thanks to all our supporters. (updated January 15, 2017)
