Donate books to help prisoners
If you have gently used (or new) books you’d like to find a useful home, we’re asking you to bring them to this year’s Florida Writers Conference to donate to the Florida Prison system for inmates’ use.
This year’s Florida Writers Conference to be held October 18-20 at the Orlando Marriott Lake Mary.
Bring your books to the conference and place them in the festively adorned donation boxes placed at strategic locations throughout the venue. The annoying guy in the Hawaiian shirts will be issuing reminders at almost every break.
The Florida Writers Foundation is dedicated to fighting illiteracy, and the prison system is a key front in that fight. Illiteracy is a key determining factor for arrest and illiterate convicts are far more likely to re-enter the prison system. Your gift of books will help inmates build their reading skills and contribute to their future well being.
