"Kya Keys" Program Donates Books to Ontario Correctional Facility

TORONTO, ONT (November 2016) - Toronto-based publishing company, Kya Publishing, has donated books to an Ontario correctional facility library through their Kya Keys Book Donation Program. The program was created to share the benefits of reading through various rehabilitation, academic, and youth institutions in Canada and Jamaica.

The books selected for donation this fall are: Letters to an Incarcerated Brother by Hill Harper, and No Disrespect by Sister Souljah. In alignment with the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services' mandates, these titles aim to affect "positive inmate and offender change" through literacy.

"These particular books are written by public figures with a deliberate messages to uplift and encourage all readers," said Kya Publishing founder Stacey Marie Robinson. "Through Kya Keys, Kya Publishing strives to assist in providing the access, potential solutions, and systems for solving issues through reading urban literature."

Letters to an Incarcerated Brother is a collection of letters between the actor/activist Hill Harper and his fans, providing "encouragement, hope, and healing for inmates and their loved ones." No Disrespect is a gritty autobiography from the female hip hop artist Sister Souljah about growing up in as a young woman in New York in the 90s, while keeping "her heart open and her integrity intact."

"It is important to gift others with biographical tales as well as fictional storytelling," said Robinson. "There is a great sense of growth, hope, and knowledge transfer that occurs through reading that is important to share whenever possible."
