Since this is the first week of Reading Room activities, we're going to flash back to one of our favorite events from last year. On July 23, 2014, author Piper Kerman and TV Critic Emily Nussbaum discussed Piper's new book, Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison, the memoir that inspired the popular Netflix series. After the talk, Kerman signed books and took photos with hundreds of fans.
