Law Library Book of the Month
Walking the Circle
The Prison Chronicles
by J. Tony Serra

In 2006, local attorney Tony Serra served time in Lompoc Federal Prison Camp. This fascinating book is a revelation about life in a prison camp, and the author's personal philosophy:
"Recently he continued his disruptive merry-making while incarcerated for a little matter of federal taxes he decided not to offer a federal government which he considers hostile to the poor, immigrants, Native Americans, and folks who enjoy a bit of inner transportation by means of forbidden substances." From the Foreword by Herbert Gold.
