‘Orange is the New Black’ author Piper Kerman speaking for free at Scranton Cultural Center on July 19
From a press release:
Author Piper Kerman, whose memoir “Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison” inspired the award-winning Netflix series “Orange is the New Black,” is the next speaker in the Matthew F. Flynn Lackawanna County Library Lecture Series. She will be speaking at the Scranton Cultural Center on Tuesday, July 19 at 7 p.m.
Tickets to all Library Lecture Series events are free. They will be available at all Lackawanna County libraries and on the Library System website approximately six weeks before the lecture in late June.
“Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison” is a chronicle of the 13 months the author spent in the Danbury, Connecticut Federal Correctional Facility. Kirman was sent there after being convicted of money laundering.
“Orange is the New Black” was turned into a popular television comedy/drama that airs on Netflix. Its fourth season will be launched on June 17, just weeks before Kerman’s appearance in Scranton.
A speaker for the American Masters Lecture, to be held in the fall, will be announced later.
