The most fundamental tool for self-education and empowerment, the dictionary, is the single most requested book by incarcerated people across the country.

However, there are never enough dictionaries on hand to satisfy even a portion of the requests.

To address this dearth of access to basic educational resources within prison facilities, the Philadelphia-based nonprofit Books Through Bars has created The Dictionary Fund.

Join Books Through Bars at Dock Street Brewery on Wednesday, February 22 at 8:30 p.m. for delicious locally brewed craft beer, gourmet pizza and live music from local bands Sour Mash and Cask & Co.

A $10 donation gets you a a beer and a slice of pizza AND a dictionary. Every additional $4 donation allows Books Through Bar to purchase another dictionary.

Help the organization reach their goal of 250 dictionaries (donations of paperback dictionaries are welcome as well).

Dock Street’s Books Through Bars Fundraiser
When: Wednesday, February 22, 8:30 p.m.
Where: 701 S. 50th Street
Cost: $10 admission
