Teaching and writing for social change: A conversation with the authors of Writing Our Way Out: Memoirs from Jail
Monday, February 8th, 12:30-1:30pm, Weinstein Hall Brown Alley Room 313
Bring your lunch for a book reading and discussion with 7 of the 11 authors whose work emerged out of a writing workshop begun at the Richmond City Jail–a six-week course led by David Coogan, associate professor of English at VCU, that turned into a nine-year odyssey of writing, editing and fellowship. “Top literary stuff! This is what changes how we see the world.” —Jimmy Santiago Baca, author of the prison memoir A Place to Stand: The Making of a Poet
Co-sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement, American Studies, One Book, One Richmond, and Boatwright Library.
