Documentary Public Showing. "It's Criminal: A Tale of Prison and Privilege" is the true story of Dartmouth College students and female inmates at the Sullivan County House of Corrections, who learned much about each other as they developed a play they performed together. (Note from League president Liz T: I've seen this film, and along with others from League have visited the Sullivan HOC. Well worth your time to learn more about the issues experienced by women incarcerated in NH. See you there!)

Concord Monitor had an article on 11/14/18 about the film.

Free and open to the public. Specific room location of showing will be announced in Feb.
