From their home page:
Can John Steinbeck or Toni Morrison steer someone away from crime and keep them out of jail? That’s the premise behind “Changing Lives Through Literature,” a program that offers some convicted felons a chance to attend mandatory seminars to discuss fiction, memoirs and poetry, as a condition of their probation. Our guest is Jean Trounstine, Professor of Humanities at Middlesex Community College in Lowell, Massachusetts.
