Between the world and me donation

On behalf of BAR NONE, Random House's Spiegel & Grau imprint generously donated enough copies of Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me for each youth at Rivarde. Providing New Orleans' majority Black population of incarcerated youth with access to this book is a beautifully powerful gesture and we are incredibly grateful for this donation.
