Words Set Free – Poems from Prisoners April 13th
April 13, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Many prisoners have nothing more than pencil, paper and books to keep them engaged while in solitary confinement. At the upcoming poetry reading students and community members will read select poems from prisoners in our Poetry Anthology #15.
On April 13 at 7:30 pm in Anabel Taylor Hall Chapel, come share in the humanity of the many prisoners across the US by listening to students and community volunteers read some of their selected poems. Prisoners are a diverse group and should be seen as individuals rather than a faceless number who has nothing to offer and no hope of redemption and rehabilitation.
Enjoy some snacks, meet other folks involved in the prison reform movement, and learn about the Prisoner Express program and how you can get involved in helping supply prisoners with opportunities for education and creative self-expression.
