What's Wrong With You!

Saturday, November 1, 2014 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Oak Park resident, Omar Yamini’s road to incarceration was not paved with neglect, abuse, or stints in juvenile detentions or group homes. Yamini was raised in a two parent suburban home with his five siblings. His positive home life could not detour him from the poor choices that would eventually land him in an Illinois penitentiary for 15 years. Yamini has chronicled his imprisonment in a power new book, What’s Wrong with You: What You, Your Children and Our Students Need to Know about My 15 year Imprisonment from Age 20-35. Join him as he shares his compelling and powerful story.
