Video On-Demand: Mark Twain House & CPA Event “WAITING FOR AN ECHO”

The Mark Twain House & Museum and Community Partners in Action teamed up to present a fascinating discussion with Dr. Christine Montross about her new book, “WAITING FOR AN ECHO: The Madness of American Incarceration.” Gordon Lyde, Peer to Peer Case Manager for CPA’s Reentry Treatment Program, was our facilitator.

Waiting for an Echo is a riveting, rarely seen glimpse into American incarceration. It is also a damning account of policies that have criminalized mental illness, shifting large numbers of people who belong in therapeutic settings into punitive ones. Watch the recording of the June 9th, 1-hour event.
