Review for Books To Prisoners, Seattle, WA, USA
As a child, I grew up with bed-time stories. Even as an adult, time for reading almost always precedes lights out. Books can transport and transform. Partially through reading I have gained a deeper understanding of our legal system, who is incarcerated, and the extraordinary challenges of living in prison. Books to Prisoners joins my passion for reading with my compassion for those who are incarcerated. When I read a letter from a prisoner requesting a book, I feel a connection with that prisoner as I realize we share something in common. We may not be so different after all. And this awareness is something good and profound.
