We are running a book donation drive in the month of October benefiting the organization LGBT Books to Prisoners, which is a “trans-affirming, racial justice-focused, prison abolitionist project sending books to incarcerated LGBTQ-identified people across the United States.”
They are currently looking for softcover books that are new — or like new — in the following categories (listed after the jump).
-LGBTQ materials (especially trans, gay and bi materials, non-fiction and fiction alike)
-Dictionaries (English, preferably softcover)
-Drawing or art (preferably how-to)
-Books in Spanish for native speakers
-African American, Latin@, and Native American history or non-fiction
-Contemporary fiction (especially urban fiction, crime fiction and thrillers)
-Mythology, occult, and alternative spirituality books
-Recent editions of textbooks
