Description Edit

Piper Kerman is the author of the bestselling memoir Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison, an account of her thirteen-month incarceration for a decade-old drug offense. Kerman's story offers a rare look into the lives of women in prison—why it is we lock so many people away and what happens to them when they're there. Orange Is the New Black was recently adapted into an acclaimed Netflix Original Series of the same name. Piper works as a communications consultant for nonprofits and philanthropies, and serves on the board of the Women's Prison Association. She has appeared on NPR's Talk of the Nation, Fresh Air, Good Morning America, MSNBC, The Moth Radio Hour, and has written about prison issues for The New York Times and other publications. After TEDxMarionCorrectional she will continue her important work.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
