The Midwest Pages to Prisoners project has settled back in with long-time partner Boxcar Books and Community Center. To celebrate the move and parade the new setup, an open house has been called for Friday September 12 from 6-10pm. This will be a great time to stroll through, get a feel for the space, and see what services Pages offers to prisoners and their friends & families. Volunteers and staff will be on hand to answer any questions and connect with those who want to help out the project and use the space. Prison Data Jeopardy and a live special request drive, as well as other groups’ info tables, will be on display throughout the night. Refreshments will be provided.
Since 1995, The Midwest Pages to Prisoners (MWPP) project has sent over 100,000 packages of books at no charge to prisoners in several states. The project promotes critical thinking, self-development, recreation, and communication across prison walls. Three programs specific to Indiana prisoners, Indiana Queer Prisoner Solidarity, The Indiana Prisoner Writing Project, and The MWPP Zine Distro, also operate out of the MWPP space in Boxcar.
