Ashley and I just returned from the NWSA conference in Atlanta, which was fantastic. Ashley’s performance of her one woman show, Doin’ Time: Through the Visiting Glass was last night; she performed and I did the sound. The play was met with a standing ovation and rich post-show discussion that delved into the writing process of the play and the struggles of prisoners and the families of prisoners.
Immediately after the show we went to a reception hosted by NWSA, where we signed copies of Razor Wire Women. We met some wonderful colleagues who do creative prisoner support work, including performance work and writing workshops. Here we are (below) with one of those great women, Marie.
We’d like to extend our thanks to NWSA for having Ashley perform and for hosting our book signing and reception. Special thanks to Bonnie Thornton Dill and Michelle Berger for helping to organize all of these events! Special thanks also to Phil for not eating all of the cake while we were in Atlanta!
