We’re only a couple weeks away from Independence Day, and in anticipation of our nation’s birthday, we’re looking at the concept of freedom. What is it? How did it come to be an American value? And what does freedom mean to Americans today?
We begin our conversation with a man who has a unique perspective on freedom: Avi Steinberg. Avi has spent time behind bars, but not as an inmate, as a librarian. In turn, he has a unique perspective on the freedom books can bring a reader, and the limitations of prison bars.
Avi is the author of the memoir “Running The Books: The Adventures of an Accidental Prison Librarian.”
