Halfway Home: Join a New Book Club for Bangor Area Community

halfway home cover

Join a new book club for Bangor Area students, staff, faculty and community members interested in learning more about the unequal effects of the criminal-legal system.

This book club was created to foster inclusion of justice-impacted students and community members in the Bangor area. The book we will be reading this semester is Halfway Home: Race Punishment, and the Afterlife of Mass Incarceration written by Reuben Jonathan Miller. As a group we will discuss key topics of the book as well as brainstorming strategies to create a more inclusive College experience for Justice Impacted Students attending UMA.

All are welcome and a copy of the book will be provided. Group meetings will start after UMA’s Spring Break (March 20th).

RSVP to express your interest by Tuesday, February 28th.

Book Club organized by UMA Student Kevin Crowley with funding from the UMA DEI Council Mini-Grants.
