by Hattie Dorsey

World Within a City is the story of Hattie Dorsey’s time working at the Maryland State Penitentiary with just six other women among nine hundred male inmates serving at least one life sentence each. From her time in rookie training through her many years at the maximum security prison, she kept a journal detailing the horrors never mentioned in the morning paper.

World Within a City is the first expose of the best kept secrets of the Maryland State Penitentiary.


Hattie Dorsey was born in Johnson Country, North Carolina, to sharecroppers Calvin and Katherine Williams. Her life consists of faith, hope, and love. She is the only female to retire from the Maryland Sate Penitentiary (now the Maryland Transition Center).

Ms. Dorsey has been married for forty-three years and has five children, a brother, and two sisters. She enjoys writing and crafts. She lives her life by the axiom: “First, Give God the glory.”
