About Juvie, he says, ?One of the few hopeful things about juvenile detention that I saw during my visits is all the reading that goes on there. No electronic devices are allowed, and there's limited TV time and access to video games, but there's a lot of reading. Ten hours a night is a long time alone in your cell. With a book, at least, you?re not quite as alone, and reading can take you to other, better worlds.? Steve Watkins is a retired professor of journalism, creative writing, and Vietnam War literature.
