Book Launch: Robert Clark

Join Robert Clark at Novel Idea for the official book launch of DOWN INSIDE: THIRTY YEARS IN CANADA’S PRISON SERVICE.

In DOWN INSIDE, Clark takes readers into a range of prisons, from the minimum-security Pittsburgh Institution to the Kingston Regional Treatment Centre for mentally ill prisoners and the maximum-security Kingston Penitentiary.

A compelling personal memoir and a scathing indictment of bureaucratic indifference and agenda-driven government policies, DOWN INSIDE draws on Clark’s wealth of experience to illustrate the challenges facing today’s prisons, why a “tough-on-crime” approach makes communities less safe, and why Canada must call for an end to the abuse of solitary confinement in its prisons.

Begins 7:00 pm at Novel Idea Bookstore. This event is free and open to the public.

Books will be available for purchase.
