Join us online next Tuesday (14 December) at 4 pm EST for the final event of our Fall 2021 After Hours  series -- "Open the Prison Doors: Political Prisoners, Prison Resistance, Prisoner Support"

Prisons and Prisoners is one of the strongest collecting areas of the Joseph A. Labadie Collection, with a significant body of materials relating to prison abolition, prisoner support, and political prisoners. Join curator Julie Herrada to view and chat about some of our rich holdings on these topics in advance of an exhibit slated to open in the Hatcher Graduate Library in January 2022. 

Register to join us via Zoom. We hope to see you there!
