Join the Academy of Lifelong Learning Book Club as we read along with NYU Reads and discuss Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson. NYU Reads is a university-wide initiative to bring the NYU Community together around a single common reading, chosen by a University committee composed of faculty, student, and administrator representatives. The book describes the compelling story of NYU Law Professor and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative Bryan Stevenson and his efforts to fight for the freedom of wrongfully imprisoned people.
Connect with others in a ALL-led discussion on October 15th at 12 pm.
This event is free and open to the public. Participants will receive a Zoom link upon registration.
About the book:
“Bryan Stevenson is America’s young Nelson Mandela, a brilliant lawyer fighting with courage and conviction to guarantee justice for all. Just Mercy should be read by people of conscience in every civilized country in the world to discover what happens when revenge and retribution replace justice and mercy. It is as gripping to read as any legal thriller, and what hangs in the balance is nothing less than the soul of a great nation.”
—Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
