Locking Up Our Own Book Cover Image

The MAP Reads July selection is Locking Up Our Own, by James Forman.  Locking Up Our Own won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction.  Jennifer Senior of the New York Times writes, “The stories he shares are not just carefully curated to make us think differently about criminal justice (though they will, particularly about that hallowed distinction between nonviolent drug offenders and everyone else); they are stories that made Forman himself think differently, and it’s in telling them that he sheds his cautious, measured self and becomes a brokenhearted, frustrated civil servant.”
