A Very Good Week Behind Bars

A Very Good Week Behind Bars

$ 7.00

Janeal Ravndal writes of her week in Philadelphia's Federal Detention Center after participating in civil disobedience as the U.S. began to attack Iraq early in 2003. Janeal shares movingly of joyful moments and discouraging times, of shared prayers and music making, and of the satisfaction of creating art from the sparse "found" materials in a cell. Conscious of the dramatic contrast between her "very good week" and the days of a typical inmate, she considers what a different world prison would be for those who found little joy or companionship there.
