Mark Salzman on "True Notebooks"

October 19, 2003

Novelist Mark Salzman tells Steve Paulson about his experience teaching creative writing at Central Juvenile Hall in Los Angeles, a detention center for L.A.’s most serious young offenders. Salzman describes the tremendous emotional power of helping these young men find words to express their feelings. And we hear some of their writing. Salzman’s memoir is called “True Notebooks.”
