Presenter: Dr. Reuben Miller is the author of "Halfway Home: Race, Punishment, and the Afterlife of Mass Incarceration" 

The One Community, One Book program, also known as OCOB, is an annual community-wide reading project coordinated by the UICHR. The project invites campus and community members to read the same human rights-related text and participate in activities like this book club!

Dr. Miller worked as a chaplain at the Cook County Jail in Chicago and is now a sociologist studying mass incarceration. He has spent years alongside prisoners, ex-prisoners, their friends and their families to understand the lifelong burden that even a single arrest can entail. What his work revealed is a simple truth: life after incarceration is its own form of prison.

Join us in a 3 part virtual book club series with moderator Dr. Mary L. Cohen, to explore the text deeper and make meaning along with others. The 3 parts of the book club correlate with the sections of the book; debt, wage, and salivation. The book club is open to all to participate and allows for flexibility, join us for one session or all.
