Season 2, Episode 1 (33 minutes)

Episode Description

Terence Lester understands the pain and frustration that comes with being taught from books featuring people who were not like him. He is channeling these past experiences into his own books which he has used to shine the spotlight on the most marginalized members of our society, such as those who are homeless and poor. In this honest and emotional season premiere episode, you'll hear Terence reading his own reflections on some of his most painful moments, and how writing has given him an avenue to channel that pain into redemptive pathways for those who read his hard-wrought words.
