Disabled and betrayed

boys-in-the-bunkhouseIn a book review for America magazine, William Bole calls The Boys in the Bunkhouse: Servitude and Salvation in the Heartland by Dan Barry a “disturbing yet beautifully told story.” Boys in the Bunkhouse is a nonfiction account of the decades-long mistreatment of a group of intellectually challenged men by their employer, Henry’s Turkey Service in Iowa. Barry was the featured author and speaker at Boston College’s First Year Academic Convocation in 2012 for his book Bottom of the 33rd: Hope, Redemption, and Baseball’s Longest Game. Bole is a senior writer/editor in the Carroll School of Management.
