This is Antero Pietila. I'll be happy to donate five copies of "Not in My Neighborhood: How Bigotry Shaped a Great American City." Pls go to my web site www.anteropietila.com and send me a message outlining how to do this.

Thanks. Will go to the web site. Would love to have a book discussion since I tell so many persons about this book. Sure many of the inmates are from this area.

Is this wish list still current? I'd like to make a donation and I imagine you have gotten a lot of interest due to the post and npr pieces.

Hi Nicole

Yes, the wish list is still good. I have 23 institutions and 23,000 inmates so it will take a long time to get all my desired titles. Most donors give fiction titles.
