KALW reporter Kyung Jin Lee recording Watani Stiner during the Q&A portion of the reading
On July 25, a radio story about the Brothers in Pen public reading was broadcast on KALW radio, 91.7 fm. It featured Noble Butler’s piece “I Am,” which resonated especially strongly as it referenced the Trayvon Martin case and the verdict came out that same evening. The show is archived and you can listen to it at http://www.kalw.org/post/brothers-pen-creative-writing-san-quentin. You can also hear some of the Q&A discussion on whether prison is helpful for people to turn their lives around.
Thanks to KALW for all the attention given to prison issues and for giving prisoners access to being heard.
