What are we reading now?

Cover of the book Guantanamo Voices Guantanamo Voices: True Accounts from the World's Most Infamous Prison

Edited by Sarah Mirk

Read online or reserve a copy with the NWTC Library today!

An anthology of illustrated narratives about the prison and the lives it changed forever.

In January 2002, the United States sent a group of Muslim men they suspected of terrorism to a prison in Guantánamo Bay. They were the first of roughly 780 prisoners who would be held there—and 40 inmates still remain. Eighteen years later, very few of them have been ever charged with a crime.

In Guantánamo Voices, journalist Sarah Mirk and her team of diverse, talented graphic novel artists tell the stories of ten people whose lives have been shaped and affected by the prison, including former prisoners, lawyers, social workers, and service members. This collection of illustrated interviews explores the history of Guantánamo and the world post-9/11, presenting this complicated partisan issue through a new lens.

Students, staff, and faculty are welcome to join. Time spent reading can be submitted as Professional Development hours with your supervisor’s approval.

Book discussion will be held in spring, summer, and fall. We hope you can join us!
