QNS/NY – Wednesday, November 16th – Book Drive at Topos Books
You can help your fellow comrade by donating books to US prisoners. It is extremely difficult for prisoners to access good, educational, up-to-date reading material on the inside which should be a basic right.
Join us by donating your gently used or new paperbacks to Books Through Bars. There has been a donation bin at Topos since November 1st, and we will also be holding this culmination event on November 16th.
On the 16th we will offer light refreshments and will be having discussions, readings, and conversation about the prison industrial complex and helping your fellow comrades on the inside.
Please bring at least one donation to this event to show your support!

African-American history, especially 20th century; Native-American history; Latin-American history; Social sciences; How-to (drawing, origami, chess, knitting, sign language…); Mayan and Aztec history; Memoirs and fiction by people of color; Mythology; Dictionaries, thesauruses, GED studies, atlases; Language studies; Sudoko/puzzles; Guides to starting a business; Yoga and pilates guides
