Sandra Adell is a professor of Literature, Dept. of Afro-American Studies at UW-Madison. Her book, Confessions of a Slot Machine Queen, looks critically at the expansion of casino gambling from the perspective of an African American woman who struggled as a young, uneducated and unwed teen mother to earn a Ph.D in Literature and a position at a major research university, only to risk losing everything she worked for after becoming addicted to slot machine gambling.
