MNR: "Words No Bars Can Hold: Literacy Learning in Prison" by Deborah Appleman

Apr 30, 2020

Deborah Appleman loves the quote from Bryan Stevenson's Just Mercy: “Each of us is more than the worst thing we’ve ever done.”

Without capital punishment in Minnesota, says Appleman, who teaching college-level language and literature courses at the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Stillwater, "we keep (inmates) alive - now how can we keep them human?"

KUMD regrets a mistake in this report: there will NOT be a virtual event (yet?) with Deborah Appleman. But you can find out more about the book and the author here at Deborah's website, and here at her author page on Facebook.
