Posted by on Mar 22, 2021 in Author Readings, Events | 0 comments

An informal book reading of “Penitentiary Tales: A Love Story” by EA Luetkemeyer, followed by a conversation with Ginna Gordon and questions from participants. Recorded March 12, 2021.

Penitentiary Tales: A Love Story recounts the escapades of Dean Davis, a thirty-something, educated, straight white male from the affluent community of Sausalito, in Marin County, California, who is sent to an Illinois prison dominated by a daunting, ethnically diverse population of inmates from the mean streets of Chicago.

How does he do his time? What challenges does he meet?

Addressing issues of race and gender in America, Penitentiary Tales: A Love Story is at once a serious inquiry into the minds and hearts of the marginalized and the oppressed and a bit of a romp. It will appeal to adventurous and intelligent readers of all persuasions who appreciate a literary walk on the wild side.
