Tekla Dennison Miller The Warden Wore Pink Speaks at San Juan College

Tekla Dennison Miller, former prison warden, and now writer, will be speaking at San Juan College in Farmington New Mexico Tuesday, November 6 at 11:30 AM on Prisons and Prisoners. Contact Connie Jacobs, PhD at 505-566-3235 or JacobsC@SanJuanCollege.edu.

Tekla is coming to speak to my English 095 class on the death penalty and the novel, A Place to Stand by Jimmy Santiago Baca. He was in prison, illiterate, and was “saved” through language and poetry. I always invite any other students to attend. I especially target Psychology, Sociology, and Human Service students.

Dr. Jacobs says:
