Sunday Salon: Prison Industrial Complex

By | February 6, 2011

Sunday, February 13th, 3-5 p.m

Black Sheep Books is pleased to present our next Salon Series on February 13th, from 3-5 pm. Join us for a discussion about the prison industrial complex and its implications in Vermont. We are interested in discussing the history of the penitentiary system, how it impacts our societies locally and nationally, as well as alternatives to the system.

The suggested articles and video links listed will help shape our conversation, but are not required reading, so peruse at your leisure. See you at the discussion!
