Bill Keller with DeAnna Hoskins & Wesley Caines

Wednesday, October 12, 2022
6:30pm — 8:00pm ET
Center for Brooklyn History

What happens inside prisons and jails, where nearly two million Americans are held?

Bill Keller, one of America’s most accomplished journalists, has spent years deeply immersed in the subject, and argues that prisons must become places where rehabilitation is a top priority. What’s Prison For? is a clear-eyed, indispensable guide to the raging national debate about criminal justice, and also a global tour of techniques for operating prisons.

It’s possible, Keller shows us, to have a prison system that isn’t a source of national shame and that doesn’t leave everyone involved in it worse off.

 

Bill Keller will be joined by two experts who have dedicated their lives to prison reform: DeAnna Hoskins of JustLeadershipUSA and Wesley Caines of The Bronx Defenders.
