I am the author of Running the Books: The Adventures of an Accidental Prison Librarian (Nan A. Talese/Doubleday). The book has been translated into four languages. It has also been optioned for a TV adaptation. My second book, a travelogue of the Great American Novel–the Book of Mormon–will be published by Doubleday in 2014. I also write for magazines–see Other Bits of Writing. I tweet at @avi_steinberg.
