What: An evening with Susan Madden Lankford, author of Maggots in my Sweet Potatoes: Women Behind Bars
Who: Lankford spent two years photographing and interviewing women in prison. Hearing their stories. Learning about their lives. Discussing the issues that led them down a destructive path.
In Maggots, Lankford and other experts delve deeper into the issues to ask how these women got there, why they often return and what we can do to change the system and society.
