IAS faculty member Dan Berger published a lengthy introduction in the new edition of Concrete Mama: Prison Profiles from Walla Walla. A photo essay authored by two journalists with unprecedented access to Washington's infamous prison, Concrete Mama was first published in 1981 and won a Washington State Book Award before going out of print. The University of Washington Press has just republished the book in connection with the UW Library. Berger will join Concrete Mama author John McCoy, formerly incarcerated activists Ed Mead and Mark Cook, UW Bothell alumna Amani Sawari, and others in a panel discussion and photo exhibition celebrating the book's release at the North Creek Events Center at 5:30 pm on January 22
