Edward Renee Harden went to prison at the age of 17, sentenced to seven years to life for murder. With good behavior, and being a “model prisoner,” he could have had an excellent chance to be released after serving seven years. Renee spent a total of 43 consecutive years and an additional two years in a transitional housing program. Yes, your math is correct, a total of 45 years, almost three-quarters of his life. And, 31 of those years he served in solitary confinement.

You are now wondering, WHY? HOW? WHAT HAPPENED? Right?

The author of The Diary of a Forgotten Child, will answer your questions and take you on his journey of:

  • being the middle child of seven, growing up in a brutal, violent home
  • physically abused by both parents, feeling neglected and like an outsider
  • an infatuation with girls at a young age
  • several sprints in Juvenile Hall
  • a naïve, scared prisoner to the head of one of most notorious prison gangs in the nation
