This event is free to attend, but donations are GREATLY appreciated, including monetary donations and paperback books. All donations received will go to benefit Chicago Books to Women in Prison, an all-volunteer group that distributes paperback books free of charge to people incarcerated in women’s prisons nationwide. They are dedicated to offering women behind bars the opportunity for self-empowerment, education, and entertainment that reading provides.
