Terri LeClercq writes a graphic novel to help prisoners

        Terri LeClerq, whose inspiring address at the 2003 LWI Conference is still remembered, hasLeClercq written a graphic novel to help prisoners write grievances. Here's what she says about it:

Almost a decade ago I recommended that LWI members should be proud of the Diamonds on the Soles of Our Shoes. I meant, of course, that we have much to offer our faculty and students.

I am offering a new type of diamond: after 10 years, I've completed a graphic novel for inmates. Yep. Prison Grievances: when to write, how to write. It's 5th-grade reading level. The pro bono hero teaches inmates to avoid frivolous grievances; a workbook at the end helps inmates overcome the technicalities of the Prison Litigation Reform Act so they can, perhaps, take their grievances into courts. I'd like to send a copy of this educational, much-needed graphic novel into the library of each federal and state prison. Will you please take a look at the project and funding suggestions?

I would like to know how to order one copy and how much it would cost. I would send it to my son and after he looks through it he donates his books.
