Author visits JCI

Warren St. John, author of Outcast United,  Maryland's  One Maryland One Book  selection for 2010, had a great discussion with the inmates when he visited Jessup Correctional Institution on Sept. 27.  The inmates asked questions about his choice of title, and his motivation for writing the book,  They discussed the  pararel in their prison environment and that of the refugees and thanked Warren for the visit.  Warren was accompanied by  MHC's staff members, Andrea Lewis  and Phoebe Stein Davis, who introduced  him. Special guest was Margaret Carty, Executive Director, Maryland Library Association. Grace Schroeder, Librarian, worked with the DOC to make the visit a smooth one.  SeriusXM radio taped the conversations.
Me?  I am always proud to show the benefits  of inmates who read.

At table, Andrea Lewis, Margaret Carty, Warren St John, Phoebe Stein Davis, Glennor Shirley
