Book Launch: The York County Jail: A Brief Illustrated History

“... a friendly combination of anecdote and academia. The writing is crisp and clean with plenty of visual elements—photos, illustrations and official documents. Intriguing scraps of human interest stories are peppered throughout.”
     —Mireille Eagan, [here] fredericton review, 23 Oct 2008
