About this title


Susan Madden Lankford, who explored homelessness and female incarceration in her two previous award-winning books, examines the plight of youngsters serving time in juvenile hall in BORN, NOT RAISED: VOICES FROM JUVENILE HALL.

For two years, Lankford interviewed more than 120 incarcerated teenagers, eight of them weekly, and features their voices, views, writing and drawings along with interviews with pediatric psychiatrists, neurobiologists, judges, probation officers and other professionals in BORN, NOT RAISED. In researching her book on women in jail, Lankford learned that a majority of inmates had at least two children in foster care, living with relatives or in detention. Many of them would end up in jail, too, because they lacked the basic parenting necessary to become productive individuals.

About the Author:

Susan Madden Lankford earned a B.S. in medical technology from the University of Nebraska, did graduate work in photography, and attended workshops with photographic masters such as Ansel Adams and Richard Misrach. After years as a successful professional photographer, Lankford shifted her focus and founded Humane Exposures, which seeks to turn public indifference to at-risk members of society into humane awareness and response. Maggots in My Sweet Potatoes: Women Doing Time was the first in her trilogy of award-winning books, followed by downtown U.S.A.: A Personal Journey with the Homeless and Born, Not Raised. Lankford also executive-produced the film It s More Expensive to Do Nothing, which offers effective alternatives to current juvenile incarceration practices.
