Becoming Ms. Burton <br/>One woman's remarkable odyssey from tragedy to prison to recovery and recognition as a leading figure in the national justice reform movement. Susan Burton's world changed in an instant when her five-year-old son was killed by a van on their street in South Los Angeles. Consumed by grief and without access to professional help, Susan self-medicated, becoming addicted first to cocaine, then crack. She cycled in and out of prison for fifteen years; never was she offered therapy or treatment for addiction. On her own, she eventually found a private drug rehabilitation facility. Once clean, Susan dedicated her life to supporting women facing similar struggles. <i>Becoming Ms. Burton</i> not only humanizes the deleterious impact of mass incarceration, it also points the way to the kind of structural and policy changes that will offer formerly incarcerated people the possibility of a life of meaning and dignity.<br/> Zoom image Becoming Ms. Burton

Betty Ford, First Lady, Women's Advocate, Survivor, Trailblazer </p><b>An intimate and insightful biography of Betty Ford, the groundbreaking, candid, and resilient First Lady and wife of President Gerald Ford, from the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling coauthor of <i>Five Presidents</i> and <i>Mrs. Kennedy and Me</i>.</b>

</p><i>Betty Ford: First Lady, Women's Advocate, Survivor, Trailblazer<i> is the inspiring story of an ordinary Midwestern girl thrust onto the world stage and into the White House under extraordinary circumstances. Setting a precedent as First Lady, Betty Ford refused to be silenced by her critics as she publicly championed equal rights for women, and spoke out about issues that had previously been taboo--breast cancer, depression, abortion, and sexuality. Privately, there were signs something was wrong. After a painful intervention by her family, she admitted to an addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs. Her courageous decision to speak out publicly sparked a national dialogue, and in 1982, she co-founded the Betty Ford Center, which revolutionized treatment for alcoholism and inspired the modern concept of recovery.</br> Zoom image Betty Ford, First Lady, Women's Advocate, Survivor, Trailblazer
