This event involves the launch of a new book, Parsimony and Other Radical Ideas about Justice, edited by Bruce Western and Jeremy Travis. The book engages the national political conversation about dismantling mass incarceration and racial justice through the contributions of some twenty authors who participated for three years in the Square One Project, a national project of narrative change.

The event would involve an hour-long panel discussion and Q&A involving the contributors to the volume, along with a reception allowing a more informal conversation among attendees and the authors. A copy of Parsimony and Other Radical Ideas about Justice will be provided to those who attend in person.
