MNR: "Words No Bars Can Hold: Literacy Learning in Prison" by Deborah Appleman

Deborah Appleman loves the quote from Bryan Stevenson'sJust Mercy: “Each of us is more than the worst thing we’ve ever done.”

Without capital punishment in Minnesota, says Appleman, who teaching college-level language and literature courses at the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Stillwater, "we keep (inmates) alive - now how can we keep them human?"

KUMD regrets a mistake in this report: there will NOT be a virtual event (yet?) with Deborah Appleman. But you can find out more about the book and the author here at Deborah's website, and here at her author page on Facebook.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
