Jim Reese

The local documentary of The Great American Read “South Dakota Authors & Their Hometowns" premieres tonight at 8:30 p.m. CT on SDPB-TV.

 

In this special production, SDPB's Andrew Bork and Lori Walsh visit book writers and lovers where they live and work.

 

Jim Reese, writer, poet and Associate Professor of English at Mount Marty College in Yankton is one of the authors we interviewed for the show.

 

During our visit, he shared his work as a writing teacher at the federal prison and reflected on how being in a place that one would rather leave changes the women and men who write in prison.
