Meet the Authors
In December 2008, twentysomething Jill Grunenwald was ready to start living her dream of becoming a librarian. But the economy was faltering. After some searching, Jill was lucky enough to snag one of the few librarian gigs left in Ohio. The catch? The job was the prison librarian at a men’s minimum-security prison. Over two years, Jill came to see past the bleak surroundings and the orange jumpsuits. By helping these inmates, Jill simultaneously began to recognize the humanity in everyone and to discover inner-strength she never knew she had. Perfect for fans of Orange is the New Black.
