Connecticut Prisons to Review Library Policy

Following up on yesterday's LISNews story that found inmates had unrestricted access to works depicting graphic violence in CT prison libraries, the state Department of Correction is revising its library policy in the wake of an Associated Press investigation.

Sen. John Kissel, R-Enfield, said he met with Correction Commissioner Leo Arnone for an hour Friday after learning that books such as Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood," a literary classic about a 1959 killing in Kansas, were among the department's library holdings.
