PMC to Host Changing Lives Through Literature Program

Robert P. Waxler and Jean Trounstine, co-founders of the Changing Lives Through Literature Program, an alternative sentencing program for criminal offenders, will speak about the mission of the program and their experience using literature to create a democratic conversation that teaches participants to examine and broaden their choices.

Pine Manor will be hosting its first Changing Lives Through Literature course this semester in conjunction with the West Roxbury District Court, so Waxler and Trounstine will be joined by PMC members Teakia Brown, Kathleen Aguero and Jean Flanagan.

The event will take place on Tuesday, April 11, 2006 at 7:00 pm in the Founder's Room in the Ferry Administration Building.
