This is a past event.

Dave Coogan, Co-Author of Writing Our Way Out

When: Wed., Oct. 25 2017
At Tap 20 Tavern (711 N. Lombardy St., Richmond, Virginia 23220). He will be there on Wednesday at 7 pm to discuss how ten men transformed their thoughts from paper to real life. The event is free and open to the public. Detailing the formative and transformative memories of ten men, Writing Our Way Out is a creative culmination of writing class that began in the Richmond City Jail in Virginia. Compiled into a narrative by teacher Dave Coogan, these stories detail the conditions, traps, and turning points on the path to imprisonment in Modern America, as well as the redemptive and rehabilitative power of memoir. Dave Coogan says of the narrative: "these memoirs are written with this hope in mind: that each man might understand the story of his life, and in so doing, change its course.”
