‘The Women of San Quentin: Soul Murder of Transgender Women in Male Prisons’ by Kristin Lyseggen

Cov_7Incarcerating transgender women in male prisons has resulted in the horrific treatment of people who are mostly nonviolent offenders. In this book, journalist Kristin Lyseggen tells the stories of nine women from a variety of backgrounds and with a wide variety of experiences before entering prison. Every story is such a brutal and outrageous offense to simple human dignity that I am left shaking after reading them. This book is the most compelling argument for comprehensive prison reform that I know of. Please read it and join in the movement to reform the criminal justice system. Available September 15 from SFINX Publishing ( Angel Curtis
