"Won't You Be My Neighbor" Returning Citizens Are Our Neighbors...and with that theme, we will be joined by David Coogan, PhD, Associate Professor of English at Virginia Commonwealth University, and co-author of **Writing Our Way Out: Memoirs from Jail, a book that features the memoirs of ten formerly incarcerated men who joined Dr. Coogan’s class while in Richmond City Justice Center (formerly known as Richmond City Jail). Two of Dr. Coogan's co-authors, Stan Craddock and Kelvin Belton, will share about their journey to jail and back into society.
These are exciting times and we are honored to host this second in-person dinner gathering at the newly renovated Virginia Museum of History and Culture. You MUST REGISTER by Monday, May 16th at 10:00 am to reserve your spot, as spaces are limited and we must let the caterer know about the number of meals. This is not a walk-in event. Each person attending must register ahead so we can properly order food and be sure we have enough room and seats for everyone. Thanks for your help with this! Looking forward to seeing you.
