Ohio and Criminal Justice Reform - Piper Kerman’s bestselling memoir Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison chronicles her “crucible experience”—the 13 months she spent in the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut after a brief involvement with drug trafficking sent her to prison on money laundering charges. In her compelling, moving, and often hilarious way, Kerman explores the experience of incarceration and the intersection of her life with the lives of the women she met while in prison: their friendships and families, mental illnesses and substance abuse issues, cliques and codes of behavior. Since her release, Kerman has worked tirelessly to promote the cause of prison and criminal justice reform. Her work also raises provocative questions about the state of criminal justice in America, and how incarceration affects individuals and communities throughout the nation.
