A new book by David and Elise Meyers

“A book due out Tuesday, July 16, by local history writers David Meyers of Clintonville and his daughter, Elise Meyers Walker of Worthington, along with James Dailey II of Kettering will take readers to a place where most people never wanted to be: Inside the Ohio Penitentiary.”

I was inside many times.  Even in the 1970s it was a very sad, haunting place. Rest in peace, Richard.

Their co-author, James Dailey II, actually did time there. "He was fantastic," Walker said. "He brought different experiences from what we were familiar with. He definitely brought more empathy for the prisoners than we would have had ... especially their stories. “

Buy the book!  History Press, Charleston, S.C., 2013. $19.99.
