Toronto Public Library

Albert Woodfox served more than four decades in solitary confinement―in a 6-foot by 9-foot cell, 23 hours a day, in notorious Angola prison in Louisiana―all for a crime he did not commit.

Dedicated to reforming the inhumanity of solitary confinement in the U.S. and around the world, Woodfox shares Solitary, his memoir of transformation and hope.

In conversation with Robyn Maynard.

Q&A and book signing to follow. Books available for purchase.


The annual June Callwood Lecture honours the life, work and legacy of journalist, author and social activist June Callwood (1924-2007). It provides a platform for the exploration and discussion of contemporary social justice issues.
