UA school to hold two book-signings
The University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service is hosting two book-signings this week.
On Monday at 6 p.m., Dan Zak will discuss his work, Almighty: Courage, Resistance, and Existential Peril in the Nuclear Age in Sturgis Hall at 1200 President Clinton Ave.
Zak is a general assignment feature reporter for The Washington Post.
“Part historical adventure, part courtroom drama, part moral thriller, Almighty reshapes the accepted narratives surrounding nuclear weapons and shows that our greatest modern-day threat remains a power we discovered long ago,” a news release from the school said.
On Tuesday, Baz Dreisinger will be at Sturgis Hall at noon to talk about his book, Incarceration Nations: A Journey to Justice in Prisons Around the World.
Dreisinger is a professor, journalist and founder of the Prison-to-College Pipeline.
His book tells the stories of incarcerated people and those who imprisoned them, “creating a jarring, poignant view of a world to which most are denied access, and a re-thinking of one of America’s most far-reaching global exports: the modern prison complex,” a news release said.
