#1 “WORDS NO BARS CAN HOLD: TEACHING AND LEARNING WITH THE INCARCERATED”
Friday, September 13, 2019
Time: 10:30am Refreshments. 11:00am program
Guests are welcome
Our guest speaker, Deborah Appleman, is the Hollis L. Caswell Professor of Educational Studies and director of the Summer Writing Program for High School Students at Carleton College. Professor Appleman taught high school English for nine years before receiving her doctorate from the University of Minnesota. She is the author/co-author of eleven books on adolescent literacy. Appleman’s recent research has focused on teaching college-level writing and literature courses for the past twelve years at a high security correctional facility for men. She and her incarcerated students published an anthology
of creative writing entitled “From The Inside Out: Letters to Young Men and Other Writing”.
Do not miss this timely and most meaningful discussion of her students’ work and her argument for the importance of liberal arts learning in prison and beyond. “Words No Bars Can Hold” will help us to better understand a marginalized group of people who can, with new tools, express themselves and find new satisfaction in life.
