Thanks for your support! For many years, AK Press has offered incarcerated people large discounts on our published and distributed books. The response has always been great: We get dozens of catalog and book requests every month.
By purchasing a Friends of AK membership for a prisoner, you are helping bring radical literature to some of society’s most oppressed individuals. They appreciate it and so do we.
We offer a discounted subscription ($15/month) for people in prison. That means we automatically charge your card for $15 once a month...and the recipient will get every book we published that month, until you tell us to stop.
If you have a particular prisoner to whom you would like us to send books, please list their name and address as the shipping address when you place your order. Important: You must be sure to get their permission first and make sure that the place they are incarcerated will accept books. If you don’t have a particular person in mind, we will assign your subscription to the next person on our waiting list.
At this time, discounted memberships are only available on orders shipping to prisons within the United States.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments. Also, if you know a prisoner who wants to be sponsored, but you can't afford to do the sponsoring, please send an email to prisonbooks__[at]__akpress.org and we will add them to our waiting list.
If you haven't done so already, we encourage you to check out all the different subscription options and decide which is best for you!
