Derek Jeffreys talked about his book, Spirituality in Dark Places: The Ethics of Solitary Confinement, in which he discusses the physical and psychological effects of long-term solitary confinement on inmates in U.S. prison systems. In his book, the author argues that solitary confinement has become increasingly abused and can exacerbate behavioral problems.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Green Bay, Wisconsin, from September 20-26 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Time Warner Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
