May 24: Book Launch with Kingston Author Robert Clark

7:00pm-8:30pm at Novel Idea Bookstore, 156 Princess St. Kingston, ON
Join Robert Clark for the official book launch of DOWN INSIDE: THIRTY YEARS IN CANADA’S PRISON SERVICE.
In DOWN INSIDE, Clark takes readers into a range of prisons, from the minimum-security Pittsburgh Institution to the Kingston Regional Treatment Centre for mentally ill prisoners and the maximum-security Kingston Penitentiary. A compelling personal memoir and a scathing indictment of bureaucratic indifference and agenda-driven government policies, DOWN INSIDE draws on Clark’s wealth of experience to illustrate the challenges facing today’s prisons, why a “tough-on-crime” approach makes communities less safe, and why Canada must call for an end to the abuse of solitary confinement in its prisons.

This event is free and open to the public.  Books will be available for purchase.
