Literary Evening with Bryan Stevenson Author of
Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption
Sponsored by University of Pittsburgh Honors College and University of Pittsburgh School of Law
with support from the Aurora Book Club and the United Black Book Clubs of Pittsburgh
Bryan Stevenson, a Harvard-educated activist lawyer, seeks justice for wrongly-convicted prisoners on death row. His memoir, Just Mercy, tells the stories of these men and their families--and makes a compelling case for mercy. Stevenson is the founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative, a nonprofit that provides legal representation to indigent defendants and prisoners who have been denied fair and just treatment in the legal system. He is also in the clinical faculty at New York University School of Law.
Squirrel Hill's local independent bookstore Classic Lines Books & More will be selling copies of Stevenson's books before and after his lecture.
Single tickets start at just $15! and can be purchased online or via phone at 412-622-8866, or at the box office the evening of the lecture.
