Harriet Hendel, speaker, is a retired educator. Her first experience in a prison took place when she volunteered to teach creative writing to 120 men a week at Green Haven C.F., a maximum security prison just 3 miles from her home in upstate N.Y. She creates courses for Senior Citizens which focus on our criminal justice system. One of the classes highlights award-winning writers who are incarcerated. Another popular class is called: “Locked Up: Justice Denied” about wrongful conviction. Harriet teaches for Longboat Key Education Center, Brandeis National Committee, Lifelong Learning Academy and Pierian Spring Academy (all in Sarasota). In April of 2017, Harriet will be a co-producer of “The Exonerated”. This show will be presented by Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota.
