The Prindle Institute is excited to welcome Piper Kerman, author of Orange Is the New Black, to campus in February as part of the Ubben Lecture series. Stay tuned for programming that we are putting together to lead up to her visit!

“Piper Kerman — whose experience behind bars is the basis of a bestselling memoir, Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Woman’s Prison, as well as a hit Netflix series — is coming to DePauw University to present a Timothy and Sharon Ubben Lecture. Kerman will discuss “Lessons Learned Behind Bars” on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium, located within DePauw’s Green Center for the Performing Arts (605 S. College Avenue). Like all Timothy and Sharon Ubben Lectures, the event is presented free of admission charge and is open to everyone. The speech will be followed by a question-and-answer session and a book signing event. Piper Kerman’s DePauw visit is presented in conjunction with the University’s Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics.”
