Film Night @ EPL - Books Behind Bars presented by GELA

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow (Thursday March 31st) at 7 p.m. the Greater Edmonton Library Association's (GELA) Women's Prison and Reintegration committee will be screening the 30-minute film "Books Behind Bars" at the Stanley Milner Library Theatre followed by a short panel discussion. The film highlights the on-going projects at the women's prison.
This is a fundraiser to help support the projects and the prison library.

Everyone is welcome to attend and since GELA has been such a great partner with FLIF in the past we hope to see a lot of familiar faces there. Suggested donation is $10 or whatever you can afford.

What will your donations do?

  • $20 will send a book and a recording (on CD) of a woman reading to her children and/or family member
  •  $15 will buy a new release fiction book or resource material for the library
  • $10 will buy books or help pay for a subscription for the library. 
No donation is too small and this is a great opportunity to meet some of the people involved in this great project.
