For several years, Wally Lamb, the author of two of the most beloved novels of our time, has run a writing workshop at the York Correctional Institution, Connecticut's only maximum-security prison for women. Writing, Lamb discovered, was a way for these women to face their fears and failures and begin to imagine better lives. Couldn't Keep It to Myself, a collection of their essays, was published in 2003 to great critical acclaim. With I'll Fly Away, Lamb offers readers a new volume of intimate pieces from the York workshop. Startling, heartbreaking, and inspiring, these stories are as varied as the individuals who wrote them, but each illuminates an important core truth: that a life can be altered through self-awareness and the power of the written word.
This collection includes voices and perspectives from prisoners, former prisoners, scholars, and activists to examine the invisible and closed system of incarceration that characterizes the massive U.S. prison industry. The book explores the role of writing in carceral settings, including material realities, ethics, and social justice.

Circulating Communities: The Tactics and Strategies of Community Publishing, edited by Paula Mathieu, Steve Parks, and Tiffany Rousculp, represents the first attempt to gather the myriad of community and college publishing projects, providing not only history and analysis but extended samples of the community writing produced. Rather than feature only the voices of academic scholars, this collection features also the words of writing group participants, community organizers, literacy instructors, librarians, and stay-at-home parents as well. In libraries, community centers, prisons, and homeless shelters across the US and around the world, people not traditionally understood as writers regularly come together to write, offer feedback, revise, publish and most importantly circulate their words. The vast amount of literature that these community-publishing projects create has historically been overlooked by scholars of literature, journalism, and literacy. Over the past decade, however, higher education has moved outward, off campus and into the streets. Many of these efforts build from writing and publication projects that extend back over decades, are grassroots in nature, and are independent of college efforts. Circulating Communities offers a unique glimpse into how neighbor and scholar, teacher and activist, are using writing and publishing to improve the daily lives on the streets they call home."
The author recounts his work with the York Correctional Institution and shares the stories of his women inmate students, describing the circumstances that led to their incarcerations and how they found their literary voices.

This book is a picture of prison life from the inside. It illustrates prison life as, at turns, exciting, surprising, distressing and, often, amusing. Each day is different, and anyone who walks through a prison gate had better be alert. It tells of the small human dramas that play out daily among staff, prisoners, and others who enter this gated world. It calls the reader to see that justice begins by seeing each person, staff or prisoner, as an individual with his or her own story. The passion of the author is to portray prison life as continuous with life in broader society. In prisons, we meet the same cast of characters, the same temptations, the same dangers, and the same rewards as on the outside. Rather than regarding prisons as separate worlds, we should regard them as extensions of the society in which we live. This is important because there is a continuous flow between prisons and the broader society. Those who go to prison usually return to society. Understanding how prisons work will help us as we consider how to reintegrate former prisoners into our society. As the author argues, this is difficult but important work.
«Η κατάρα που απέτυχε να σε σκοτώσει δημιούργησε έναν περίεργο δεσμό ανάμεσα σε εσένα και στον Άρχοντα του Σκότους. Τα στοιχεία δείχνουν ότι κάποιες στιγμές που το μυαλό σου είναι χαλαρωμένο, και άρα ευάλωτο –όταν κοιμάσαι για παράδειγμα– μοιράζεσαι τις σκέψεις και τα συναισθήματά του. Ο διευθυντής δε θέλει να συνεχιστεί αυτό. Θέλει να σου διδάξω τη σφραγισματική για να σφραγίζεις το μυαλό σου στον Άρχοντα του Σκότους. Το Χόγκουαρτς ζει σκοτεινές ώρες. Μετά από την επίθεση που κάνουν οι Παράφρονες στον ξάδελφό του τον Ντάντλι, ο Χάρι Πότερ ξέρει πως ο Βόλντεμορτ θα κάνει τα πάντα για τον εντοπίσει. Υπάρχουν πολλοί που δεν πιστεύουν πως ο Σκοτεινός Άρχοντας επέστρεψε, αλλά ο Χάρι δεν είναι μόνος του: ένα μυστικό τάγμα συγκεντρώνεται στο Γκρίμολντ Πλέις για να αντισταθεί στις σκοτεινές δυνάμεις. Ο Χάρι πρέπει να αφήσει τον καθηγητή Σνέιπ να τον διδάξει πώς να προστατευθεί από τις άγριες επιθέσεις του Βόλντεμορτ στο μυαλό του. Αλλά οι επιθέσεις γίνονται κάθε μέρα και πιο άγριες και ο χρόνος δεν είναι με το μέρος του Χάρι...
