    Hi SLA-NY Community,

    Sharing information about the Prison Library Support Network's Book Club in collaboration with Bluestockings Bookstore. The Prison Library Support Network (PLSN) is an information-based collective founded in 2016 to support incarcerated people and was a recipient of SLA-NY's 2020 Organization Spotlight Award. Their first (virtual) meeting is on Sunday, May 9, 5-6:30PM and they will be discussing the book We Do This 'Til We Free Us: Abolitionist Organizing and Transformative Justice by Mariame Kaba. More info and sign up here: www.bit.ly/PLSNxBSTOX

    I attended several sessions of PLSN's book club when it was in-person at METRO and found it a great opportunity to learn more about and discuss the history of prisons and incarceration in the United States, prison abolition, and information accessibility. I won't be able to attend this upcoming book club, but hope to see you all at one in the future!

    Best,
    Alice

    That is terrific news.  Also Bluestockings has a new venue space as I recall, so when we get to go back to bookstores, that will be nice to see.

    All the best, Clara
