WINNIE: My Life in the Institution. By Jamie Pastor Bolnick. Twenty years ago, a woman who had lived her life in a mental institution wrote a book to prove she wasn't retarded. Of below-average intelligence, Gwynna Sprockett was orphaned as an infant, treated badly by foster parents and committed to an institution at the age of 6. She was brutalized by some of the attendants, but a teacher encouraged her to read and write. She struggled with a mind able to sense its limitations but often incapable of overcoming them. She later died, still in an institution. Winnie Sprockett's voice gives life to this familiar story.
