On March 30th, CANDO posted the following (see below) on Amy Povah’s CANDO Facebook home page about numerous emails she was receiving from prisoners at FCI Coleman.
We received a memo explaining that prisoners will no longer be allowed to receive books from family or friends sent through the mailroom. Prisoners must now order books through the Bureau of Prisons at a 30% mark up and it is our understanding that prisoners will not be allowed to order books not approved by the BOP. Read this memo entitled : Inmate Book Ordering Procedures issued by the Warden at FCI Coleman on March 29th, 2018. This is of great concern to the CANDO Foundation and the National Council of Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls.
