Current Book Giveaway
Our current Book Giveaway is The Untold Story of the Real Me.
This book is a collection of poems written by young people who were charged and incarcerated as adults at the age of 16 or 17. All poets are members of the Free Minds Book Club and Writing Workshop; many are currently incarcerated in the DC Jail or federal prison. Their work explores themes of parenthood, love, pain, identity, race, and freedom in voices both raw and powerful. This book is being used in classrooms across the country to start conversations around youth violence and the justice system.
The Untold Story of the Real Me provides a new take on the power of one voice to speak truth to pain, to seek redemption and healing.
