Joan Moses, author, Breaking the Cycle, Writings by Women in Prison and Tracy Harris, the social services coordinator for Volunteers of America, appeared on WCCO-TV's 9am newscast on April 24 to preview the release of the new anthology. In addition, on April 25, The Bulletin newspaper published a story; on April 26, Moses was interviewed on WCCO Radio; and earlier in the month, on April 20, a story about the book was published in The MN Sun Focus newspaper. The launch of Moses' book took place on April 30 at Saint Maron Maronite Church in Minneapolis.
The anthology is a collection of stories written by 43 women who were involved in a Moses’ personal writing group at the Residential Re-Entry Center of Roseville. The Center is run by Volunteers of America. The women had been incarcerated for a variety of reasons and at the time they wrote their stories were in the process of being released back into the community. The womens' writings focus on their families and how they were raised, their relationships, losses and gains, addictions and recoveries, education while in prison, and what they need to accomplish or change in themselves in order to reinvent their lives as law-abiding citizens. The anthology was put together by Moses, who has been leading weekly writing sessions for the group since June 2015.
Joan Moses is a well-known author in the East Metro, having previously written five books, including Roseville Girl, which shares her memories of growing up in the city. At the event, she also released her latest children’s book, There Was An Old Lady Who Met a Monster.
In addition to books by Joan Moses, also sold at the event were copies of Genny Kieley’s latest children’s book, Stevie the Bat, and her Northeast Minneapolis history books. In addition, Moses’ daughter, Susanna Moses, sold opies of Monica’s Silent World, a story about a young girl with autism, and Nectar, a book about bullying.
