An Evening with Piper Kerman, Author of Orange is the New Black. September 26, 2017, 7:00pm - Tickets required

Piper Kerman’s best-selling memoir Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison chronicles what the author calls her “crucible experience”—the 13 months she spent in the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut. A brief dalliance with drug trafficking while she was in her early twenties sent Kerman to prison ten years later on money laundering charges. In her compelling, moving and often hilarious book, she explores the experience of incarceration and the intersection of her life with the lives of the women she met while in prison. Kerman’s expert storytelling depicts life in a women’s prison with great detail and with genuine empathy and respect for her fellow prisoners.
