Clear & Present Stranger: Words from Incarcerated WritersWednesday, December 4, 2019 @ 7:00pm - 8:30 p.m.
Join us for an evening featuring and celebrating the work of writers at Pennsylvania state prisons SCI Somerset, Laurel Highlands, and Fayette. Presented by the Pitt Prison Education Project.
Pitt Prison Education Project is a collaboration between between Pitt faculty and incarcerated and non-incarcerated students of the University of Pittsburgh. PPEP offers both Inside-Out and inside-only courses. The writing for the evening’s performance was facilitated by Pitt English Department faculty Cory Holding and Shalini Puri with support from the Offices of the Provost and the Chancellor of the University of Pittsburgh.
The question in every case is whether the words used are used in such circumstances and are of such a nature as to create a clear and present danger.”––Oliver Wendell Holmes, 1919
