As all of you know, several months ago I signed a contract with McFarland and Company for my book on college for prisoners, College for Convicts: The Case for Higher Education in American Prisons. This book presents the current state of prison education, the reasons why policy makers and the American public should support higher education for prison inmates, and profiles a number of successful prison education programs across the country.
Today I’m proud to announce that we’ve made a lot of progress on this project and that the book is now available for pre-order at the following URL:
While the book will not be out until either late this year or early next year, I implore you to show your support for this project by going ahead and pre-ordering your very own copy of College for Convicts. This way, once it is available to the public, you will be one of the first to receive a copy. Also, by pre-ordering a copy today, you will be showing the publisher that there is a great need for this book, which will result in additional resources being assigned to it’s marketing budget, which will help to promote the cause of educating our nation’s prisoners.
Thank you in advance for your help in this matter. Together we can convince both the American public and our political leaders that additional funds need to be allocated to prison education programming, the most effective, proven method of reducing recidivism that we currently know of.
