Thursday March 15: 7:00PM 8:00PM

Join WNYC Studios for a Caught podcast Listen Lounge in Strand Bookstore's Rare Books Room.

America incarcerates more people than any country in the world. It starts with kids. On any given night, roughly 53,000 young people are in some form of lockup. Nearly 60 percent are black or Latino. We all make dumb mistakes in our youth. But for these kids, those same destructive choices have a lasting impact.

Caught: The Lives of Juvenile Justice tells the stories of young lives forever changed by collisions with law and order. Caught features parents, guards, counselors and judges, who hold the power, but whose hands are often tied by laws that ultimately fail our children.

Attendees will join together to listen to an episode of Caught together, followed by a Q&A and group discussion. WNYC Studios swag included!
