Consider sharing the gift of this book with someone you know who is incarcerated--or sponsor it for a prison library--and help make a difference possible for those who want to be able to function as useful members of the community at last. You cannot change someone's life--only they can do that for themselves--but you can give them a way to learn how to do it.
"This book reflects the author's understanding of the tremendous human potential lying dormant in our prisons." -Dorothy Walsh, Violence Prevention Coordinator STEP, Inc., Boston, MA
Comments from prison librarians:
"These books do not stay on the shelves. They are constantly checked out. I've had over 250 requests. Please send us as many as you can spare."
"When Houses of Healing first arrived, all the copies were checked out immediately and a long wait list formed. I had to work hard to get borrowed books back so that everyone had a chance to read it."
"It's people like you that enable us to operate effectively under severely limited budgets."
