"Unguarded Moments"

Tuesday, October 10 › 7-8 p.m.

Columbia Public Library, Friends Room

Author Larry Neal will share his perspective on life at the Missouri State Penitentiary, not as a prisoner or guard, but as a maintenance worker. The stories offered up in his book "Unguarded Moments" show that life inside the prison walls could be surprisingly light-hearted, with prisoners and staff playing pranks on each other and crawling through dark tunnels together. At this author talk he will also show some artifacts from the penitentiary. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing.

Registration: Not required.
