During our most recent book club, it was unanimous that the next book should be, "Orange Is the New Black," by Piper Kerman!! Haha...I'm sure most of you have heard of the Netflix series, so we thought it would only be appropriate if we read the real life story of Piper Kerman. Oh it gets better:) In honor of the book, it would only be right for it to be a prison theme. It would be great if you can dress like one of the characters of the show/book-you can be creative, doesn't have to just be an orange jump suit. To get an idea of the characters, please visit: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2372162/. You do not need to watch the series in order to identify with the characters:) For the food, I provided an example, but please feel free to be creative (Example, you can rename regular dishes by calling it, Crazy Eyes Pea Soup-you would have to read/watch it in order to understand.lol)!! It would be great if you can watch an episode of the show and see what the inmates are eating.
Cornbread, fruitcups, mashed potatoes, franks and beans, rice, mac n cheese, etc. Think t.v type of food.

Synopsis (Taken from barnesandnoble.com):
With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money ten years before. But that past has caught up with her. Convicted and sentenced to fifteen months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187–424—one of the millions of people who disappear “down the rabbit hole” of the American penal system. From her first strip search to her final release, Kerman learns to navigate this strange world with its strictly enforced codes of behavior and arbitrary rules. She meets women from all walks of life, who surprise her with small tokens of generosity, hard words of wisdom, and simple acts of acceptance. Heartbreaking, hilarious, and at times enraging, Kerman’s story offers a rare look into the lives of women in prison—why it is we lock so many away and what happens to them when they’re there.
