Friday April 1 will be the Official L.A. Launch of BAD: The Autrobigraphy of James Carr at Beyond Baroque to correspond with the AWP conference.
Join Gea Carr (daughter of James) and some Very special guests as we launch our new edition of BAD –An unapologetic, brutal memoir from notorious 60s career criminal and Black Panther James Carr. BAD covers Carr’s life from his first arrest for burning down his school at age 10, through merciless stints in San Quentin, where he shared a cell with famed Soledad Brother George Jackson, through his tragic post-incarceration murder in San Jose in 1972. A savage indictment of the American penal system, this classic release has new significance as part of a growing, urgent demand for prison reform.
And prison reform will be one of the topics explored as Three Rooms Press presents The Official LA Launch of BAD: The Autobigraphy of James Carr.
Copies of BAD will be avaialble for purchase at the event.
General admission is $10; discounted admission ($5) for seniors, students; Beyond Baroque members –Free.
Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center is at 681 Venice Blvd., Venice, CA 90291, phone: 310-822-3006. For additional information and reservations, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
