Description
Lee Stringer discusses his novel, “Sleepaway School,” in which he recounts both his years at Hawthorne Cedar Knolls, a school for children at risk, and the years and events that landed him there. He explains how growing up poor and black in a predominantly affluent and white suburb in New York instilled within him a great deal of pain and rage, which frequently erupted in the form of violent outbursts at school. Stringer maintains that his childhood serves as an example of how children will fashion their lives out of the materials presented to them, whether for better or worse.
