Ann Walmsely spent years leading in-prison books clubs in Canada. She is a compassionate writer and well-read teacher who inspired inmates to read, to think, and to write journals about the literature they read.
The Prison Book Club is set in Ontario, in and around a series of men’s prisons. Walmsely kept track of the books, the conversations, and the resulting journals, all while interspersing her own story and reactions.
Prison Education Guide provides essential, detailed information about the educational courses offered to inmates. It is also a guide to re-entry success. Christopher Zoukis, federal prisoner, is an excellent researcher and writer. All prison libraries need a copy.
Bo Lozoff applies the techniques of Buddhist thought to all of us, and especially those incarcerated. 1.Simple living; 2.Personal spiritual practice; 3.Commitment to service. Useful, practical, great read.
