Thirty years ago, Betty Baer was incarcerated in a Texas prison for a spray painting offense she did not commit. She was convicted because of her leftist beliefs. With poignancy and humor, her new memoir reflects on her Jewish New York roots, the sixties radical movement, life behind bars and the criminal justice system, a story that remains relevant today.
Betty Baer grew up in a Jewish middle class suburb of New York and moved to Houston in the 1970’s to spread the revolution. Following her incarceration, she graduated college and became an occupational therapist at the VA hospital. She lives in Houston with her husband and family.
We have copies of Betty’s memoir available for $15 in the temple office. A portion of the proceeds from book sales go back to HCRJ.
