Wally Lamb

Wally Lamb is the reason this book came together. This best-selling author agrees to give a short talk at York Correctional Institution in Connecticut about the healing power of writing. The one-time talk turns into several years of writing workshops with women in the prison and results in this compilation of short stories.

Wally Lamb is a family man, a teacher, and a fiction writer. He becomes a very famous writer when he lands on Oprah's Book Club for his novel She's Come Undone and also for I Know This Much is True. He likes to work with the "tough cookies" in the school where he teaches. The women at York are also "tough cookies" because they will not be defeated or silenced. They continue to tell their stories through the written word. Getting to know them has transformed Wally Lamb's life.
