Curious about Prisoner Express and how it all started?
Come to the Durland Alternatives Library in beautiful Anabel Taylor Hall to learn about Prisoner Express, a program founded by Gary Fine more than 20 years ago to help break the isolation and despair of incarcerated people through writing, reading, and art.
Through newsletters, book exchanges, and art and creative writing programs, Prisoner Express brings hope and fosters a sense of community among the more than 4,000 prisoners who participate. Meet Gary and some of the volunteers who help manage the creative writing programs offered by PE. If you wish, you can write a letter to a prisoner in response to one of their poems, stories, journals, or art.
