Welcome to the world of Prisoner Express [PE]. My hope is that within these pages you will find projects that inspire you. PE is a program of the Alternatives Library, which is a library and reading room located on the Cornell University campus. My name is Gary, I work at the library, and I direct PE with the help of volunteers, student workers and you. Our programs are designed to offer you opportunities to engage in meaningful and creative activity. I often hear that prison life can be dull and repetitious, and that once you have a GED there are few opportunities for expanding your education. PE attempts to breach that void with offerings on a constantly changing variety of subjects. In this newsletter you will find a description of the programs we are offering this cycle, as well as a presentation of some of the writing and art that has been submitted by PE members through previous programs.
