at Lakeshore Middle School

 

Humanity for Prisoners is thrilled to welcome best-selling author Alex Kotlowitz to West Michigan to raise awareness of issues within our criminal justice system and to highlight the important work of our organization.


Kotlowitz, author of "There Are No Children Here," "The Other Side of the River," "Never a City So Real," and "American Summer," was a friend of the late Maurice Carter, and readily accepted HFP’s invitation! He has a personal interest in prisons. In 2016 he worked with inmates of Illinois’ Stateville Prison writing essays about their lives in cells, now featured in the podcast "Written Inside."

If you are interested in being a sponsor for the event, including having dinner with Alex beforehand, you can find details on sponsorship at https://tinyurl.com/y4o6zlo4. Tickets for the event are $25 in advance, $15 for students and $30 at the door. Tickets are available at The Bookman or online at humanityforprisoners.org/alex-kotlowitz.html.
