Join the Whole Lot of Nonfiction Book Club this month to discuss a timely book: Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, by Bryan Stevenson. Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need. One of his first cases involved a young man who was sentenced to die for a murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Stevenson into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinkmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

Just Mercy was named one of the Best Books of the Year by The New York Times and recently won the Carnegie Medal for Nonfiction. Anyone age 18 or older is welcome to attend. The book club meets bimonthly at the Southwest Branch Library. No registration needed. For more information, please call 407.835.7323 or email southwest@ocls.info.

When: Wednesday, September 09, 2015, 10:00 am
