About The Event

About NONAME Book Club:

"We’re an online/irl community dedicated to uplifting POC voices. We do  this by highlighting two books each month written by authors of color.  In addition to building community with folks across the country we also  send our monthly book picks to incarcerated comrades through our Prison  Program."

November Pick is Solitary: A Biography

"A man who spent four decades in solitary confinement for a crime he  did not commit tells his shocking story . . . Woodfox explains how he  overcame [brutal conditions] despite relentless despair . . . An  important story for these times . . . An astonishing true saga of  incarceration that would have surely faced rejection if submitted as a  novel on the grounds that it could never happen in real life."--Kirkus Reviews

"Solitary is an astounding story and makes clear the  inhumanity of solitary confinement. How Albert Woodfox maintained his  compassion and sense of hope throughout his ordeal is both amazing and  inspiring."--Ibram X. Kendi, author of Stamped from the Beginning, winner of the National Book Award
