I'm curious how my books-to-prisoners program can get involved with you Greenies...a colleague and I want to find penpals for many of these prisoners who have no one on the outside to write to them which is so sad...they would be so grateful. I've just started writing to a number of prisoners, and sometimes use a form letter which I then personalize at the top with the greeting and personal first paragraph. Whatever interests you have are shared by people who happen to be in prison, so maybe matching up people by commonality of interest would work well? My email is rcat32@yahoo.com --Rosemary
