At the event Breakout: Voices from Inside, Jackson Taylor moderates a conversation with Wally Lamb, Barbara Parsons, and Wahida Clark about writing behind bars.

Proceeds from the event and raffle help ensure that PEN’s hallmark program continues to promote the restorative and rehabilitative power of writing by providing hundreds of inmates with skilled writing teachers, free Handbooks for Writers in Prison, and a forum where inmates are encouraged to use the written word as a legitimate form of power.
