The Warden’s Son Book Release Party

Mark your calendars for the release of The Warden’s Son, a posthumous memoir about growing up at the Idaho State Penitentiary by Jerry Clapp, son of Idaho’s longest serving Warden, Lou Clapp, and featuring an introduction by Anthony Parry, Old Idaho Penitentiary Interpretive Specialist. This fascinating “family portrait” brings stories of the Idaho State Penitentiary to life with chilling recollections of riots, escapes, and hangings as witnessed by a little boy living on the prison grounds. Admission is $8 for adults or free with the purchase of a book and includes presentations by the publisher and widow of Jerry Clapp. ISHS Members receive free admission and an in-store 10% discount on The Warden’s Son.
