2014 Book of the Year

Cuesta College Book of the Year welcomes Piper Herman's Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison. Her memoir recounts getting mixed up in drug trafficking only to get caught and locked up a decade later. Compelling, moving and often hilarious, the book sheds a unique light on life inside a women’s prison. It’s also the subject of a new Netflix series. 


The Book of the Year Program is a project of the Academic Senate of Cuesta College and is organized by the Cuesta College Book of the Year Committee.
