elimination of similar programs
at the elementary and high school
level as well as satellite programs in
Detroit and Ypsilanti.
Remaining is the core of the program
- the one-on-one interaction with the
mentor and student. The personal style
accommodates students' individual
learning styles, which traditional school
systems often do not have the resources
"The school system is not working for
many children," Cherniak said. "It needs
innovation. I think Reach Out is a really
good start - it adds a young, passionate
person to the team who can then advo-
cate for the child."
Mentor volunteers devote at least one
day a week to meeting with a child at
school. Many mentors further build their
relationships with the children by meet-
ing with their teachers and visiting their
Organizers envision creating similar
programs at other universities, making
Reach Out a national organization compa-
rable in size to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
"It's an ingenious little model," said
Flood. "There are (University) students
that need to see the way other people
live and you have students that need help
- it's a really powerful way to meet in
the middle ground."
Lasovage is anxious to conduct
research tracking the program's progress
while working on expansion.
"We consider Reach Out to be a move-
ment," she said. "The coolest things in

ers began approaching her for help defending
controversial books, Mammino took an active
role in the association, speaking as a panelist at
a national censorship convention and eventually
joining the board.
Although Mammino says she has always
been aware of civil liberties issues, she cred-
its her years at the University with cultivating
her interest. She graduated from the University
in 1968 with an undergraduate degree in Eng-
lish, and later completed a master's degree and
Politically active classmates and a campus
teach-in protesting the Vietnam War exposed
Mammino to new ways of thinking.
"That was a big awakening for me in my
freshman year," she said. "(Michigan) broad-
ened my world and made me a much more
It was at the University that Mammino got
what would be the first of many jobs working
in a book co-op in the basement of the Michi-
gan Union. There, she says, she was further
exposed to a wide variety of people.
"I remember ringing up books one day for a
transvestite guy who had a huge red beard and
wore a girl scout uniform," she said. "We had a
Although Mammino says she's never been a
"joiner," visits to a living room on Hill Street
that would later become The Ark, and to an
Ann Arbor high school gym to watch a young
Bob Dylan perform for 75 cents, kept Mammi-
no abreast of shifting opinions. Still, she said it
wasn't until she returned for graduate school at
the height of antiwar protests that she became
intimately involved with demonstrations and
"When I came back to Michigan, things
were really tumultuous ... because of the war,"
Mammino said. "I became very politically
After graduation, she bounced around from
job to job as a high school English teacher, a
counselor, a social worker - even to a brief
stint as a sheep shearer in New Zealand. Mam-
mino is the first to admit she never expected
to hold a day job for more than a few years,
let alone return to her conservative hometown
after her years in Ann Arbor.
She considers herself a necessary oddity in
"I'm sort of the piece of grit in the oyster
shell," she explained.
Throughout Mammino's life, she said it
has been the demand for an advocate and
the need for free expression that has moti-
vated her to act.
"If you want a diversity of ideas, you need a
diversity of outlets," she said.
Mammino explained her philosophy of vari-
ety with an analogy.
"I once had a picture in my mind of how
interesting it would be if every Coke bottle was
different," she said.
Even compared to her experiences in the
1970s, Mammino says she is shocked by the
current political climate and provisions in the
Patriot Act that allow the government to review
"To me, civil liberties issues at the moment
are more serious and more dangerous than at
any time during my 58 years on this planet,"
After her term with the association ends,
Mammino expects to remain active with cen-
sorship issues as the need presents itself, but
hopes to refocus on the nation's income gap
between the rich and poor and its growing pov-
erty, particularly in Detroit.
Mammino continues to play many roles, but
to the snow-boot clad six-year-old bouncing
down the creaking pine steps into her shop for
the first time, she is simply "the book lady."
