Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan on Mother Antonia by Mitch E. Perry06/02/06
Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan are foreign correspondents for the Washington Post , and they head that paperÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s London Bureau. In 2003, they won the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting for their coverage of MexicoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s criminal justice system. And they are the authors of Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Prison Angel: Mother AntoniaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Journey from Beverly Hill to a Life of Service in a Mexican JailÃ¢â‚¬?, just published in paperback.
This is the story of Mary Clarke, a woman who lives and works in a Mexican prison in Tijuana. We began our interview with Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan Ã¢â‚¬â€œ who incidentally Ã¢â‚¬â€œ are married, asking Mary first, how did they come across the woman known as Mother Antonia? (roll tape#1 o.q. Ã¢â‚¬Å“this is overÃ¢â‚¬?)
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Washington Post reporter Kevin Sullivan, along with reporter Mary Jordan. TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re book about the woman known as Mother Antonia, Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Prison AngelÃ¢â‚¬?, has just been published in paperback. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll hear more from them on the Evening News next week.
