‘Prison: a Survival Guide’, with Carl Cattermole and Erika Flowers

Wednesday September 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

£1.00 – £5.00

Carl presents his essential guide to life in UK prisons – now fully updated and featuring contributions from female and LGBTQI prisoners, as well as from family on the outside. Carl will be joined by Erika Flowers who will share her experience of Holloway women’s prison.

Carl Cattermole is a young ex-inmate and legal reform campaigner. He spent time in five different UK prisons and, sharing cells with international gangsters, drug addicts, psychopaths and sex offenders, he formulated his idea for a book to help inmates cope with the unique challenges of prison life.

The book features contributors Sarah Jake Baker, Jon Gulliver, Darcey Hartley, Julia Howard, Elliot Murawski and Lisa Selby.
