A group from the Touchstone Institute will speak on their experiences as
young women and adolescent offenders. Touchstone is a residential treatment
facility for female offenders. In the Fall of 1999, award-winning poet
Sharon Charde began the creative writing program at Touchstone for young
women to tell their stories and express themselves in positive ways. The
result, almost ten years later, is a wealth of poetry, some published, that
provides sometimes painful insight into the world of too many youth today.
Please join The Center for New Words <http://www.centerfornewwords.org> as
we welcome these talented young women and listen to their messages of truth,
desperation, and hope. Explore with us the impact of the justice system in
the United States.
*Wednesday, October 15 @ 7:00PM*
*Cloud Place, 647 Boylston Street, Boston, MA*
