J Journal Launch

John Jay College of Criminal Justice's President Jeremy Travis invites you to celebrate the launch of J Journal on Wednesday, September 17th at 5p. This is the College's very first literary journal on crime and I'll be reading Tuesday, a piece I wrote about the quick and cold reality of male prison intake back when I taught writing to Rikers Island inmates. I'll also be reading The New Plantation, a piece my good friend Jason Trask wrote on the complicated, sometimes humorous process of educating young Black and Brown inmates. Jason unfortunately won't be able to attend but I'm honored to read what I believe is his best work yet!

John Jay is located at 899 Tenth Avenue and 59th Street. RSVP:
