Join us at City Lit Books in welcoming Mark Dostert to discuss his debut memoir, Up in Here: Jailing Kids on Chicago’s Other Side, which chronicles his experiences as a counselor at the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center, Chicago’s infamous 500-cell juvenile jail, known as the Audy Home.
Mark will be in conversation with Alex Kotlowitz, author of There Are No Children Here: The Story of Two Boys Growing Up in the Other America. We’re looking forward to a provocative dialogue. Don’t miss it!
