"Writing Our Way Out" Authors Dave Coogan, Kelvin Belton and Dean Turner 

When: Sat., Dec. 9, 4-6 p.m. 2017
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.”
