Wally Lamb and prison

I was just listening to an interview on CBC with Wally Lamb – and I didn’t realize the work he’s been doing (for the past 9 years) with women at the York Correctional Institute in Connecticut.  The women from his prison writing workshop wrote a couple of books (which the institute tried to prevent from being published) and one of the women was awarded a PEN literary award.

Some of you may already be aware of this (the story is from 2004) but here’s a link for those who are interested to read/watch more:http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/05/07/60minutes/main616203.shtml
