Book Event Tonight at Seaburn Books

From Joey in Astoria Friend, Zora O'Neill:

Local criminal justice teacher Peter Moskos (who happens to be Zora's husband) is having a book event at Seaburn tonight at 6.30 p.m. Peter's book, Cop in the Hood, is about his time in Baltimore working as a police officer, in the same area where The Wire was shot. It "examines policing from a first-hand police perspective, focusing on the failure of the drug war and its impact on police culture and arrest decision in the ghetto." Cop in the Hood won the 2008 PROSE award for best book in Sociology, and is coming out in paperback next month.
