Do you have a friend or family member in prison who would like to receive books? We may be able to help. Please email us at chicagobwp@gmail.com. Be sure to include the name and mailing address of the incarcerated individual.

You may also be interested in other resources available to women in prison and their families, friends and advocates.

We meet Sundays 2-5 p.m. to fulfill requests and other activities at 4511 N. Hermitage (Hermitage and Sunnyside). We’re only two blocks from the Montrose Brown Line stop and there is plenty of free street parking. Look for our doorbell at the top left of the church entrance.

Want to donate books or other materials? Learn more here.

If you have any questions—or would like to drop something off, but Sunday afternoon is inconvenient—please email us at chicagobwp@gmail.com.
