Orange is the New Black

I recently read Orange is the New Black and loved it.  Piper Kerman's memoir of her year in prison for a ten year-old, nonviolent drug crime will leave you questioning the effectiveness of The War on Drugs, mandatory minimums, and the bias within the penal system.  Most of all, however, it will leave you missing the characters and concerned for their future well-being.  Now a Netflix series, you can read the book, or watch the show based on actual events. 

Happy reading,
Christine
