Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson

Common Reading Discussion

Please join our Dickinson community discussion of Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson, on Monday, January 22 at 4:30 pm at the Waidner-Spahr Library.

A limited number of free copies of Just Mercy are available to registrants. Additional copies are available for checkout at the library.

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. Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of justice.
