Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman will be an Internet Streaming Series

orangeisnewblackJust found out that Netflix has produced Season One of Orange is the New Black    I read the book that the series is based on  in 2009 and thought it was a fascinating read.  Although not your “typical” convict , Kerman, a Smith graduate, lands in a Danbury, Ct.  federal prison on a money laundering charge when her wild post college life catches up with her. The author gives an honest depiction of daily life in a women’s prison. I won’t ruin the details which were surprising to me, but Kerman made me care about the women trapped in the prison system and praying for its overhaul.
