Still Doing Life: 22 Lifers, 25 Years Later
“Life without parole is a death sentence without an execution date.” —Aaron Fox (lifer) from Still Doing Life.
This webinar features Howard Zehr and Barb Toews upon the release of their new book “Still Doing Life.” Twenty-five years after “Doing Life,” Toews and Zehr revisit, photograph, and interview many of the same individuals on life sentences at a Pennsylvania prison who literally have not moved for the past quarter-century.
Still Doing Life offers a riveting longitudinal look at a group of people over an extended period of time—in this case with devastating implications for the US criminal system. Each night in the United States, more than 200,000 men and women incarcerated in state and federal prisons will go to sleep facing the reality that they may die without ever returning home. There could be no more compelling argument to stop this inhumane practice than the photos and interviews in this book and presented during this webinar.
Howard Zehr is a distinguished professor of Restorative Justice at Eastern Mennonite University’s Center for Justice and Peacebuilding. He is the author of the bestselling The Little Book of Restorative Justice; Doing Life; and co-author, with Barb Toews, of Still Doing Life (The New Press), among other titles.
