“This book is impossible to put down because [Kerman] could be you. Or your best friend. Or your daughter.”
—Los Angeles Times.
Piper Kerman is a celebrated memoirist and author of the bestselling book and later TV comedy-drama series Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Woman’s Prison.
In her memoir, Piper recounts the year that she spent in the Danbury Correctional Facility for a crime she had committed ten years prior as a very brief, very careless dalliance in the world of drug trafficking. Compelling, moving, and often hilarious, the stories of the women she met while in prison raise issues of friendship and family, mental illness, the odd cliques and codes of behavior, the uneasy relationship between prisoner and jailor, and the almost complete lack of guidance for life after prison. The memoir was adapted into an original Netflix series of the same name by Jenji Kohan.
Kerman has delivered lectures to campuses across the country, including the University of Tulsa, Fairfield University, Salem State College, Rutgers University, New York Law School, and many others. She has also spoken to groups that include the American Correctional Association’s Disproportionate Minority Confinement Task Force, federal probation officers, public defenders, etc.
She serves on the board of the Women’s Prison Association.
