Call for Fiction Titles. My friend, Raquel, who owns Downtown Book Center, told me today that she received an order for three thousand fiction titles for new federal prisons that are opening in the Southeast. She said that the prison authorities leave it up to her to choose the books, but require her not to pick titles that deal directly with violence. Half the titles are to be in Spanish and half in English.

I think Raquel would be receptive to some suggestions on titles. So if you know of some Christian or Christian-value fiction that I could suggest, fiction that might interest younger prisoners in prison, I will pass it on. I was thinking that perhaps the Frank Peretti series might be a candidate. I was also thinking of the CS Lewis science fiction series, maybe even the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and the Tolkein series. But I would like to hear of what Kith and Kin folks would suggest.
