In die Gefängnisbibliothek der Versicherung wegen
Am 19. Oktober wird das Buch "Running the Books: The Adventures of an Accidental Prison Librarian" von Avi Steinberg bei Nan A. Talese erscheinen: "Avi Steinberg is stumped. After defecting from yeshiva to Harvard, he has only a senior thesis essay on Bugs Bunny to show for his effort. While his friends and classmates advance in the world, he remains stuck at a crossroads, unable to meet the lofty expectations of his Orthodox Jewish upbringing. And his romantic existence as a freelance obituary writer just isn't cutting it. Seeking direction — and dental insurance — Steinberg takes a job as a librarian in a tough Boston prison".
