Book Signing: Pruno, Ramen, and a Side of Hope: Stories of Surviving Wrongful Conviction

April 10, 2016 @ 6:00 pm

Come meet the authors of Pruno, Ramen, and a Side of Hope: Stories of Surviving Wrongful Conviction. We will also hear from anarchist activist Scott Crow, who played an integral role in supporting and defending the Angola 3.

About the book:
Imagine you are in prison for a crime you did not commit. You cannot believe what has happened to you and you’re certain the system will correct the error. Five years later and you’re still behind bars. Are you still certain? What would you do to survive day after week after month locked up with some of the most dangerous people you’d ever meet?

People who have been wrongfully convicted tell stories of hope, redemption, and how they continued to believe the system that put them behind bars would eventually find them innocent. From prison yard gardens to contraband cooking to family visits, “Pruno, Ramen, and a Side of Hope” gives you a glimpse of life inside some of America’s prisons and shares how each exoneree survived, and in some cases thrived, and prevailed against overwhelming odds.
