Tales of a Jailhouse Librarian by Marybeth Zeman



If you think you know kids, you might want to rethink after you read this book.   Mrs. Z finds much of what she learned in counseling training had to be re-evaluated when she started a book cart at the School Program for Incarcerated Youth at a county jail in Long Island, New York.

This book contains 50 some stories of wayward kids some of whom might have the potential to be productive citizens.  I believe that Ms. Zeman is a factor in helping some of those kids to transition to productive people in society. 

The stories are sometimes hard to read and sad.   Books have always been motivation and escape for me.  Ms. Zeman feels getting the kids reading is that and more, hope!

A non-fiction, very worthwhile book to read.

I recommend the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
