Lock ’em up and throw away the key – A Book Reading

By

Another book reading to attend (I last blogged about one here):

Sasha Abramsky, author of “American Furies: Crime, Punishment, and Vengeance in the Age of Mass Imprisonment,” will be reading from her book and answering questions at Powell’s City of Books, on Friday, June 1st, at 7:30 p.m.

From Powell’s web site:
In this dramatic exposé of U.S. penitentiaries and the communities around them, Sasha Abramsky finds that prisons have dumped their age-old goal of rehabilitation, often for political reasons. Brilliantly researched and compellingly told, American Furies: Crime, Punishment, and Vengeance in the Age of Mass Imprisonment shows that the ethos of “lock ’em up and throw away the key” has enormous social costs.”
