In 2020, Carole Glasser Langille published the memoir written while in residency at Historic Joy Kogawa House. Doing Time: Writing Workshops in Prison (Nimbus Press) puts to rest many of the myths we have about prison inmates. Shared moments of self-awareness are revealed through the poetry workshops Langille offers in a prison setting. Her experience confirms both that people cannot be reduced to their worst deeds and that creative expression has a central place in the process of rehabilitation. Most pointedly, Langille’s work reveals how, by failing the men and women behind bars, the prison system harms us all.
