Books to Prisoners Holiday Initiative

Each month, the Direct Action Monterey Network works with staff and friends at Old Capitol Books to pool our money to send books off to prisoners in California’s jails and prisons.

This holiday season, Old Capitol Books invites the Monterey community to open their hearts and send a prisoner the gift of a book this winter. We believe that books and reading are so important and that everyone deserves the chance to have access to good literature.

We have lists of prisoners in California’s jails and what they like to read. You can pick out a book and send a note, or simply get the book and we’ll do the rest.

Anyone who wants to buy a book for a prisoner will get 50% off that book and Old Capitol Books will package the book and send it off.

Also, if you know someone in jail or prison, you can also take advantage of this holiday sale!

This will run from December 1st to December 23rd.

Thank you for reading, and we hope to see you in here soon!
