Book updates from Alisha!!

LeLe wants to extend an enthusiastic thank you to everyone who sent books to her for her birthday! She received over 70 titles! WOW! Thank you for supporting her passion for reading, writing and drawing!

She recently finished “N.B.” by Charlotte Shane and has now begun reading “Bad Feminist” by Roxane Gay and “Invisible No More” by Andrea J. Ritchie (

Unfortunately, Decatur Correctional limits how many books a prisoner can maintain possession of in their property holdings. LeLe has reached this limit and the property officers are threatening to take any new books away from her. This is such an arbitrary further punishment.

She’s asking people to please pause on sending her books for the next several months and prioritize sending books to other folx inside. You can check out other incarcerated sex worker’s book requests here: that SWOP Behind Bars helps curate!

She can still receive magazines/subscriptions so those are still great to send!
