March 18, 2010 Reading Material
Today, I spent the whole day reading this book from my "to read" stack. In the Sanctuary of Outcasts by Neil White was a book I just picked up at Barnes and Noble when Gus and I were having coffee one night. It is a tale of Carville, Louisiana, where a federal minimum-security prison and a leper colony coexist in the same campus. Neil is convicted of bank fraud and has to serve his sentence at Carville. Only upon getting there does he find out it is also a leperarium (correct term for leper colony). It's a great read and I think I was drawn to it by the cover art. It is an easy read and I finished in a day.
