15 Books Spotted In Season 5 of 'OITNB'

Poussey would love them!

The fifth season of Orange is the New Black hit Netflix on June 9th, proving to be just as shocking as the previous four seasons. Many fans were waiting to see what was going to happen in Litchfield in the wake of Poussey’s tragic death at the end of last season. In the most touching homage, the characters created an art installation out of books in Poussey’s honor.

 

Poussey spent a significant amount of time in the library at Litchfield, and creating this tribute was especially appropriate for her. A number of great books were included in the art installation/memorial library, but here are 15 that we love and we know Poussey would too:

 

1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

2. The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris

It's obvious that the Orange is the New Black creators realize the importance of literature and the positive effect of being surrounded by books. The creation of a book monument was the perfect tribute to the beloved Poussey.
