Just Mercy - Book Discussion - Saturday, October 24, 2015 -- 10AM

Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn't commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever. Just Mercy is Bryan's remarkable story.

And Just Mercy is the selected title for this year's Go Big Read at UW-Madison. Bryan Stevenson, the author, will appear on campus the evening of October 26th, at 7PM. Join us in Black Earth on October 24th, to discuss the book with UW-Madison School of Library Science discussion leaders, Mary Murphy and Carrie Portz. Pick up your copy of the book at the library today!
