The full hour is devoted to Keramet Reiter, UCI professor of Criminology, Law, and Society to talk about her new book 23/7: Pelican Bay Prison and the Rise of Long-Term Solitary Confinement, published by Yale University Press, http://www.kerametreiter.com/. Michael Saavedra, who was detained in solitary confinement the last 10 years of his 19 year prison sentence from which he was released in 2/2017, was originally scheduled to appear on this show. Once he’s recovered from last night’s motorcycle accident, he will appear on this show, offering his insight as a resilient detainee in long-term solitary confinement. Reiter’s research and Saavedra’s experiences yield stories that exceed the darkest of Charles Dickens’ passages.
