An Evening with Piper Kerman, Author of Orange is the New Black

  • Date: April 11

    Time: 6:00–7:30 p.m.

    Location: Fisher Auditorium


  • Piper Kerman is a social justice advocate and the author of The New York Times bestselling memoir Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Woman’s Prison. This memoir recounts the year that Piper spent in a correctional facility for a crime she had committed ten years prior.

    Compelling, moving, and often hilarious, the stories of the women she met while in prison raise many issues that are prominent in society today. The memoir is also the inspiration behind the Netflix series of the same name. Join Piper as she speaks about learning from mistakes, the power of women’s communities, prison reform, the Netflix series, and her life and experiences.
