After many hard months of work, I’m proud to announce that my latest book, College for Convicts: The Case for Higher Education in American Prisons, is now available for pre-order through my publisher McFarland and Company.

McFarland and Company picked up the academic book and are publishing it under the title College for Convicts: The Case for Higher Education in American Prisons. And Prisology has picked up the prisoner correspondence guide, which is tentatively titled College for the Incarcerated. Both publishers seem enthusiastic about the projects.
