College in Prison: Reading in an Age of Mass Incarceration (Feb 2017) by Daniel Karpowitz was reviewed in the November 7th issue of Publishers Weekly:
Debut author Karpowitz explores the value of liberal arts education and the nature of incarceration as the two strands join in the Bard Prison Initiative, a college-in-prison program that specifically aims to recreate the liberal arts college experience in multiple prisons in New York. His account draws on his personal experience as an instructor and administrator in the program. Karpowitz moves between scholarly examinations and novelistic narrative recreations of his classes that allow the students’ voices (albeit filtered) to be heard.
