This is a pay-what-you-wish benefit show with all proceeds going to our friends at the Prisoners Literature Project.

We are also doing a book drive for the PLP throughout the day.
How does the book drive work?
Donate any book from our Prisoners Literature Project display and on Saturday, April 30 and receive 20% off your entire purchase. Yes, that includes books for you!
This is for one day only, and only on purchases made in-store.

(Please note we cannot accept donations of books for the PLP from your personal collections.
We appreciate the effort, but due to the rules regulating books and mail in prisons throughout the US, we can only collect titles designated for PLP donation in-store).
