I had never heard of Piper Kerman, a fresh-faced blond, until recently. And why would I? Kerman was arrested for smuggling drug money from Chicago to Brussels, ten years after the fact…ahhhh to be young and stupid. She plea bargained and manuevered only 1 year of prison time. Her memoir, Orange Is the New Black has been picked up by Showtime as inspiration for a mini-series.
Meanwhile Kerman has a few insights from lockdown that can be applied to the workplace. Talk about transferrable skills. I’m an avid reader so I may pick up her memoirs today. Should be a good read.
