The Prison Compendium
Release date December 16, 2016
EMP Publishing presents: The Prison Compendium. Edited by Jennifer Word, with an original cover design by Fatlind Colaku.
This exciting project is also being spread via Indiegogo Generosity Fundraising, to provide as many copies of TPC to as many different prison book donation programs as possible. The fundraiser will last an entire year, while we continue compiling the TOC. Upon release of TPC on December 16, 2016, EMP Publishing will mass-ship copies of the compendium to as many prison book donation programs as our fundraising allows. Our ultimate hope is to put at least one copy of TPC into every prison library in the United States.
