Outcasts - Penikese Island by WPI Lecturer and local poet Even Rifkah, follows the stories of the patients and staff who were confined to a colony for lepers on a tiny island 14 miles off the coast of New Bedford. See the patients, the buildings, the grave markers they left behind; hear portraits of their lives, and discover the strength, kindness, and courage of people faced with an indifferent and seemingly hopeless situation. www.everifkahwriter.com
