  • Tannenbaum, Judith.
    DISGUISED AS A POEM: My Years Teaching Poetry at San Quentin.

    Edition: First printing, a trade paperback, issued simultaneously with hardcover.

    Boston: Northeastern University Press, (2000.). SIGNED first edition - Tannenbaum spent four years teaching poetry to maximum security prison inmates at San Quentin, just north of San Francisco.

Notes. 217 pp. Cover praise from Hettie Jones, Luis Rodriguez and others. SIGNED on the title page. ISBN: 1-55553-452x.
