OPEN BOOK: Prison Book Drive 2021

 

OPEN BOOK is part of The Prison Project, an initiative by Tattered Cover Book Store to
promote reading within the prison system in Colorado and elsewhere.

 

This year, OPEN BOOK takes the form of a Holiday Season Book Drive, enabling our community to give the gift of reading to persons in incarceration within the Colorado Prison System.  It is founded on a simple premise: that books open a path to a better future.   As booksellers, we believe that reading leads to empowerment and empathy, allowing each and every one of us to make more of our lives.  


♦♦♦

 

This year, we call upon the generosity of Tattered Cover's customers to donate a book

for the benefit of persons in incarceration within the Colorado Prison System.

 

Working in partnership with the State of Colorado Department of Corrections, we have created a short list of
title
s
on a wide range of subjectsthat are in demand within the twenty or so institutions that make up our State's prison system.

 

All books purchased as part of the Drive will be given by Tattered Cover Book Store to

the Colorado Department of Corrections for distribution to prison libraries across the State.
