TEXAS LETTERS is an ongoing anthological work revolving around lives spent in solitary confinement in Texas. At the heart of this journey is the notion of the misuse of power: a gross violation of human rights that invariably leads to pain, suffering, and, in some cases, death. A collective work, it explores the loss of sanity, humanness, and, oftentimes, hope through the personal writings of a diverse and growing ensemble of people who have spent months, years, and sometimes decades within the bowels of these harsh and unrelenting conditions.

​Proceeds go to the writers featured in the book. 

Available for order in mid-April.
