The Wadhams Free Library presents:
Moriah Shock: Learning to Leave by Robert Harsh – Wednesday, May 22, at 7:30pm
Reber resident Bob Harsh has been spending some time in prison. As a guest speaker at one of the Wadhams Library’s Wednesdays in Wadhams lecture series he will talk about his recent work as a volunteer helping prisoners learn to read.
Robert Harsh is a retired counselor and adjunct faculty member at SUNY Plattsburgh. He has taught sociology courses at two state prisons in the region, including a course on the history of prisons at the maximum-security Dannemora Correctional Facility. He currently tutors for Literacy Volunteers at the Moriah Shock facility.
He will give us an inside look at volunteering in prison as well as a brief review the history of American prisons focusing on the institutional structure and individual experience of incarceration. (Wadhams Free Library)
