Banning Books In Prisons On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, news about book bans have been in the spotlight lately, but books are also being banned in prisons without much public attention.

The Marshall Project, a nonprofit newsroom focused on the criminal justice system, published a searchable database of the books banned in 18 state prison systems.

News Director Eric Douglas spoke with Andrew Calderon about the project and what it means in West Virginia prisons.
