NYC Books Through Bars is an all volunteer-run collective that sends free books to incarcerated people across the country. Join them and the folks at ABC No Rio at their annual bingo fundraiser September 19, 2014. Doors open at 7:30pm and games begin at 8! Face Book event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/289708914546972/

Bingo cards will go for $2 each and $5 for three cards. All the proceeds from the event will be used directly on postage to send books to prisoners. Please bring a pen to help you notate bingo.

Throughout the evening, we will be raffling prizes from The IFC Center, Gristle Tattoo, SHAG sex shop, Babeland, Pioneers Press, Pok Pok Restaurant, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Book Thug Nation, The Feminist Press, Cinnamon Snail Food Truck, Interference Archive, Verso Books, Terri Restaurant, Third Root Community Center, NYC Trapeze School, Just Seeds Arts Collective, AMC (TV network), Criterion Films, New York Public Library, and more.

ABC No Rio (and their Zine Library! ) is accessible by the F, J, M, and Z trains off the Delancey-Essex Street stop. If you cannot make it to bingo night, please consider donating to Books Through Bars NYC here: http://www.booksthroughbarsnyc.org/#!donate/c1ghi. You can donate money, stamps, packing supplies, or books. Just $10 can send three book packages to three prisoners.
