    Contact: Reference Dept   847-8720 x208   info@newportlibraryri.org
   

Nick Horton’s talk will be an opportunity to experience the 'power of proximity' that Bryan Stevenson discusses in his book, presentations, and media appearances. Mr. Horton will relate some of the personal histories that provided the impetus for statewide criminal justice reform over the last decade, all of which have led to current efforts to pass the major Justice Reinvestment Legislative Package. Bryan Stevenson catalyzed these efforts when he visited Rhode Island in 2015 to attend a forum at Roger William University that focused on mass incarceration in the United States. Mr. Horton will narrate the ongoing campaign that stemmed from that event. He will then present a vision for ending mass incarceration in Rhode Island, rooted in his experiences working to keep his clients out of prison. His presentations will
include guest speakers who have graduated successfully from the 9 Yards program talking about their own personal journeys.

Mr. Horton has been working in Rhode Island within the field of criminal justice reform and prisoner reentry since 2004, when he graduated from Brown University. He has dedicated his career to ending the cycle of crime and reincarceration, one law at a time and one person at a time. As Policy Director for OpenDoors, Norton helped lead the successful campaigns to return the right to vote to people on probation, to reform court-debt related incarceration, to decriminalize marijuana, to push back against the over-criminalization of sexworkers, to expand Drug Court, and to reform the probation revocation system. Now, as Program Director for the last four years, he founded and runs 9 Yards,
an innovative prisoner reentry program that has cut recidivism by 71%.

Free and open to the public. Register below or call 847-8720 x208.

A Tale Through Generations, Wars, Countries, and Religions
When a young woman visits a convent in Italy, she uncovers an extraordinary story of courage and compassion in the face of the brutal Nazi regime.

Prague is being torn apart by Hitler’s army. The Jewish community is being shipped off to concentration and extermination camps. One young woman, Katarina, wants to help them. She has a position in the government social work office and forms an alliance with her superior, Mademoiselle Zelinsky. Meanwhile, Jewish underground members have secretly connected with the naïve Katarina. Zelinsky, however, has an agenda of her own—and she may lead the entire operation to ruin.

Decades later, another young woman, Delilah, visits Tuscany, Italy. As she is touring the countryside with her friends and fiancé, she gets into a horrific car accident. Delilah is lucky there happens to be a doctor among the crowd of onlookers. He takes her to the convent of La Certosa di Pontignano to recover, where she meets Sister Katarina. Sister Katarina tells Delilah the story of the other Katarina and makes an unexpected connection with the young woman.

Dale Martellino blends history, suspense, and romance in this intricate tale. She addresses the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim European communities and modern issues of identity and devotion. The horrors of the Holocaust have left scars that will never be forgotten, but we should also celebrate the heroes who stood up to genocide and tyranny.

Dale Martellino lives in Middletown, Rhode Island. She is a retired English teacher from the Newport School Department. In addition to writing, Martellino loves traveling the world, both in real life and through her daydreams.

Dale Martellino will be discussing her novel, Precious Jewels on Saturday, June 3 at 2:00 pm. Free and open to the public. No registration required.

Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world.
