"It's difficult for us captives to get ahold of literature a lot of times due to lack of funds and a myriad of restrictions on the literature we can get... Keep publishing works like this that contribute to the creativity and critical thinking of those who become exposed and take up these works."

SELECTION OF EXCERPTS FROM PRISONER LETTERS RECEIVED BY INSIGHT PRESS


Below is a selection of excerpts from the numerous letters we receive from prisoners. Please support our ability to fulfill these requests by Joining Friends of Insight Press!

Greetings to your entire staff. I am a captive in one of California's thirty-three prisons... I stumbled upon a piece by Bob Avakian titled "Intoxicated With the Truth" from his book Observations on Art and Culture, Science and Philosophy. This is very inspiring material... It's difficult for us captives to get ahold of literature a lot of times due to lack of funds and a myriad of restrictions on the literature we can get... Keep publishing works like this that contribute to the creativity and critical thinking of those who become exposed and take up these works.

My problem is less than major: for sure, but with your help and assistance that will be changed for the better with a small donation to a poor black person working day and night to continue his learning an education from behind bars. I wish to request one copy of the book by Ardea Skybreak, The Myth of Creationism, soft cover, if possible. 
from a 60 year old prisoner in Texas

I have finished reading the book which you were so kind to have sent to me... Insight Press you have gotten off to a good start. The literature must continue. We must keep the flame alighted! I sincerely hope for the success of your newly afooted publishing house. And without a doubt, in whatever capacity I can, I will promote the enterprise... the future is bright; but we must seize the brightness.
 from a prisoner in California

I'm writing you concerning the possibility of obtaining a catalog of all the different revolutionary books you have for sale... I'm interested in ordering some good studying revolutionary books etc... For now I like to thank your workers for their time and help.
 from a prisoner in California

I've finished reading both of the books (From Ike to Mao and Beyond by Bob Avakian and Dispatches from the People's War in Nepal by Li Onesto) and they're being circulated and read through the POD here, as is all the material I receive... Again, I not only thank you for the books, but I simultaneously apologize for not being in a position right now to pay for them. I'm always eager to gain knowledge that can be put to use and I assure you that anything that you send is never in vein. Even if I don't agree with all of it, it's read thoroughly, circulated and always discussed/debated.
 from a prisoner in California

I extend my best to you. I saw the advertisement for Ardea Skybreak's new book The Science of Evolution." I'm indigent and wanted to inquire if ... I could work out a discounted price that I might be able to afford for a soft cover edition of this book. It would be of a tremendous help.
 from a prisoner in California

Do you have literature you give to prisoners? If so how do I go about obtaining it? ... Do you have a free literature list for prisoners?
