Innovations In Reading Prize Winner

ImageWonderful news!

We are delighted to have been awarded an Innovations in Reading Prize by the National Book Foundation. Five organizations were recognized for “modeling creative approaches to sharing literature with diverse audiences.” The $2,500 prize will go a long way toward helping us continue to serve women prisoners in nine states.

Many thanks to our awesome volunteer Linnea who identified this opportunity and coordinated the initiative!
