Wally Lamb discussed his book, Couldn’t Keep It To Myself: Testimonies from Our Imprisoned Sisters, published by Regan Books. The book is a collection of autobiographical writings produced in a workshop conducted for the female inmates of Connecticut’s York Correctional Institution. Each of the eleven selections is a re-examination of its author’s life and of the reasons that she ended up in prison. The memoirs recount tales of broken homes, poverty, violence, drug and alcohol abuse, teenage pregnancy, and race and gender bias. Some of the contributing authors have completed their sentences, while others are still serving their prison terms. Three contributors to the book joined Mr. Lamb. They were Nancy Whiteley, author of “The True Face of Earth,” Tabatha Rowley, the author of “Hair Chronicles,” and Robin Cullen, the author of "Christmas in Prison". close
