PEN America Winter 2019 Authors’ Evening with Rachel Elise Barkow
This dinner will be hosted by Francis Greenburger at his home on Tuesday, March 12, 2019.
Rachel Elise Barkow will discuss her latest book Prisoners of Politics: Breaking the Cycle of Mass Incarceration, a set of prescriptions for the American criminal justice system based in a thorough and refreshingly ideology-free cost–benefit analysis of how to cut mass incarceration while maintaining public safety. She points to specific policies that are deeply problematic on moral grounds and have failed to end the cycle of recidivism.
