About The Event
Who are the people in prison or on death row? Those of us who are "free" don't often think of those who are incarcerated but friendship and communication have the power to heal and enrich lives on both sides of the prison bars.
Friending Rosie: Respect on Death Row explores the friendship between Judith Favor and Rosie Alfaro – women separated by class, race, religion, and prison walls.
Judith Favor reads an excerpt from her book "Finding Rosie" with Lyn Juckniess voicing Rosie.
We will also have excerpts from PLP book-request letters.
This special event sheds insight on those who are incarcerated and on death row - exploring themes of friendship, compassion, and understanding the realities of a life behind bars.
