Event description

Description

Part of "Works of Justice", our series with the PEN America Prison Writing Program.

Hosted by Mariame Kaba, activist, organizer, and founder of Project NIA (which advocates the end of youth incarceration) editors and curators of The Long Term: Resisting Life Sentences Working Toward Freedom (Haymarket Press) will read and discuss the narratives of people surviving the effects of long-term incarceration. With Kathy Boudin, Victoria Law, Janos Marton, Sarah Ross, and more.

The title refers to Long Term Offenders—the state’s term for those serving sentences of over sixty years, and the collection brings these too-often silenced voices to light, offering a powerful indictment of the prison-industrial complex from activists, scholars, and those directly surviving and resisting these sentences.




Presented by Housing Works Bookstore Cafe and the PEN America Prison Writing Program, "Works of Justice" is a series exploring the relationship between writing and incarceration, amplifying work by writers in prison, and presenting challenging conversations about criminal justice in the USA.
