Hello everyone:

I'm interested in issues regarding literacy for women in prisons. I'm
planning a proposal for a short, voluntary course looking at children's
fantasy books for interested women who find themselves in jail.

Does anyone know of any academic work on reading programmes for female
prisoners, or on issues of literacy experienced by such prisoners? I'd
envisaged offering a range of materials from picture books to more complex
novels for young adults.

Thank you for your help,

Susan Bugler
