POPS the Club Anthology
by Amy Friedman and Dennis Danziger
Dream Catchers, the seventh volume created by members of POPS the Club, is an enlightening and inspiring collection of art, prose, and poetry by high-school students with a unique perspective: they have encountered the pain of the prison system--most have incarcerated loved ones, and some have themselves been in detention. By telling and sharing their stories, they not only start the process of healing but also illuminate a world many of us are unfamiliar with.
POPS the Club offers a sacred space where those with incarcerated loved ones can connect with each other, creating a supportive and open-hearted community. Students draw, paint, write, photograph, talk, listen, and share their stories, untangling the web of shame, stigma, and sorrow these young people too often face.
This collection represents the work of high school students from Los Angeles, Harrisburg, Atlanta, and New York City.
