To place a framework around the issue of incarcerated girls, we are asking our guests to read the data gathered by the Chicago Taskforce on Violence and this article about by Bernadine Dohrn.  Both readings can be found on the Girl Talk Blogsite at http://chicagogirltalk.wordpress.com/2011/03/11/dinner-and-dialogue-with-girl-talk-april-20th/.
