MADISON, NJ - Residents are invited to a free event at the Madison Library on Tuesday October 22 at 7pm.

Author Paul Kahan will be at the library discussing his book on one of Philadelphia's most well known landmarks, the Eastern State Penitentiary. Paul Kahan presents the history of this revolutionary penitentiary, from its inception as a model of the revolutionary Pennsylvania System of incarceration in 1829 to the demands for its closure in the wake of ever-increasing violence in 1971.
