UPDATED: APBP Makes National News
Just in time for Thanksgiving, the Appalachian Prison Book Project got a great writeup in US News.
...and not only US News. Katy Ryan notes that the story was on the Associated Press wire service and picked up by a number of sites:
"Vicki Smith, a local AP reporter, wrote a nice story on APBP, which was picked up by a lot of sources yesterday, including US News & World Report, Yahoo, HuffingtonPost, Salon.Com. I saw online newspaper versions from Hawaii (!), Washington, California, Idaho, Texas, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Virginia, Georgia, Indiana, Ohio, Vermont, West Virginia, Missouri, Wisconsin, and Maryland.
Thanks to PhD student Dominique Bruno for her interview. Pictures are included in some of the articles. ("Cute chick," says one particularly astute Yahoo commentator. :-)
Our website usually gets about 10 hits a day. We were over 600 yesterday. And we've received 450.00 in donations. A few minutes in the sun!"
