In his book A Prison in the Woods: Environment and Incarceration in the North Country (Univ. of Mass. Press, 2020), Hall looks at the impact of state and federal prisons on the Adirondacks.
The book covers over 150 years of history related to the North Country’s prisons, and explores the intersections of economics, race, class, place and belonging in the isolated prison towns of America’s largest state park.
The talk will begin at 7 pm and will be followed by a Q & A session. This program will be held via Zoom. Registration is required and can be completed online.
