QUICK TAKE

'Orange' returns

 

Season 7: The seventh season of "Orange Is the New Black" starts streaming Friday on Netflix. The award-winning show is based on Piper Kerman's memoir about her experiences in a federal women's prison. Her character — Piper Chapman — is played by Taylor Schilling.

NPR guest: Kerman was the special guest last week when NPR's "Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me!" brought its show to Blossom Music Center. (See that story here: https://bit.ly/2JMvWWX.) Kerman took the Not My Job Quiz and was interviewed at length by host Peter Sagal. She shared, among other things, her recipe for Prison Cheesecake.

Writing teacher: Kerman lives in Columbus with her husband (played on the show by Jason Biggs) and young son. She teaches writing classes for women at the Ohio Reformatory for Women in Marysville, and for men at the Marion Correctional Institution.
