UA school to hold two book-sign­ings

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - ARKANSAS -

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.
