PRG’s reports and annual reviews provide further detail of our work and its benefits. The resources section includes guidelines and suggested material for reading groups. We have also created Book Talk, our remote reading group resource; our Bookstuff handouts; and a series of Finding a Good Read videos and handouts to support libraries and prisoners.
Here are some useful resources for reading groups.

- Short story ideas
