Cold Call

My reading keeps bringing me back to the publications of Associate Professor Megan Sweeney.  She has studied reading in women's prisons and how the women have benefitted from reading fiction, self-help and other books.  She mentions prison libraries a little and usually describes them as under-resourced by the prison management.  I thought she would be a great person to be in contact with, so, through the magic of the internet, I found her website: https://www.lsa.umich.edu/daas/people/ci.sweeneymegan_ci.detail and emailed her.  I thanked her for her publications and explained briefly what I am doing. She looks nice on her page.  I wonder if she will answer me!

Well, she did!  Very nicely too.  Maybe one day I will visit her! That would be fun.
