Hell Is a Very Small Place: Voices from Solitary Confinement

Please join us for the launch of Hell Is a Very Small Place: Voices from Solitary Confinement, a new book from the New Press edited by Jean Casella, James Ridgeway, and Sarah Shourd. The book provides firsthand accounts from 16 current and formerly incarcerated people of what it is like to be kept alone in a cell—offering a perspective that should inform any debate about human right and prison reform. Two of the book’s editors and three contributors who survived solitary confinement will speak to these issues.
