Book Talk & Discussion with Maya Schenwar—Sun., Nov. 22 in Evanston

May&Book
Meet author Maya Schenwar, a good friend of Chicago Books to Women in Prison, and join the discussion.

Locked Down, Locked Out looks at how prison tears families and communities apart, creating a ripple effect that touches every corner of our society. Through the stories of prisoners and their families, as well as her own family’s experience of her sister’s incarceration, Schenwar shows how the institution that locks up 2.3 million Americans—and decimates poor communities of color—is shredding the ties that, if nurtured, could foster real collective safety.

Plan now to attend this free book talk and discussion.

Sunday, November 22, 12:30 p.m.
Unitarian Church of Evanston
1330 Ridge Avenue (map)
(parking lot and entrance on Greenwood)
