Dennis Sobin spent 10 years in federal and state prisons when he refused to plead guilty and accept probation for crimes he did not commit, crimes that in fact never occurred. But he didn’t despair while in prison. He used his time to create art and to plan his return to society where he would establish the Prisons Foundation, Safe Streets Arts Foundation, Prison Art Gallery and the Rehabilitation Foundation, publishing several books and ultimately receiving recognition for his accomplishments at the John F. Kennedy Center. Author of the highly praised book Art Inside Prison: Understanding and Helping Artists in Prison, his book From Prison to Homelessness to Kennedy Center Stage: An Odyssey of Rejection, Perseverance and Triumph is a factual account of the challenges the author faced when he returned after imprisonment to the free world. There were many obstacles but with each one Sobin learned new coping skills which he shares in this book. “The key to success and triumph I found is to never give up. I began to view every challenge as an opportunity, every negative incident as a learning experience. The people who got in my way were my teachers who made me smarter and stronger. They unknowingly prepared me for any problem that came my way. Then there were the people who believed in me. They helped keep my heart light and my mind alert. The task before me was to transform the first group into the second one.” Sobin explains, “I could only do that by transforming myself.” Whether you read From Prison to Homelessness to Kennedy Center Stage: An Odyssey of Rejection, Perseverance and Triumph for information or inspiration, you will find out what it takes to rise from ashes heights that may seem unattainable. All you need is belief in yourself and confidence in your ability to withstand any storm that comes your way. And the knowledge that storms turn arid land into rich, fertile ground where dreams can blossom and multiply as happened with author Dennis Sobin.
