Chicago Books to Women in Prison 15th Anniversary Party, November 15th 6pm-9pm

CBWP 15th Anniversary Social Media Post 3We hope you can join us in the after-words event space helping one of our favorite charities celebrate 15 years of providing a lifeline to women in prison!

Suggested donation $15 (or pay what you can)

The program for the evening includes writer, scholar and artist Eve Ewing.  She will read from her widely acclaimed Electric Arches.  

KoStar, an amazing soul duo, will perform. You may have seen them at the farewell event for Rasmea Odeh, the African Festival of the Arts or many other venues.  Monica Cosby, a writer and activist, will speak on the importance of books for people in prison.  And, members of Praxilla Femina—a women’s music collective of professional opera singers—will sing.

And it’s also a release party! Monica will read selections from Bound Struggles, our re-launched journal of writing and art by women in prison. Everyone at the party will get a copy.
