John Grisham writes of Stevenson, “Not since Atticus Finch has a fearless and committed lawyer made such a difference in the American South. Though larger than life, Atticus exists only in fiction. Bryan Stevenson, however, is very much alive and doing God’s work fighting for the poor, the oppressed, the voiceless, the vulnerable, the outcast, and those with no hope. Just Mercy is his inspiring and powerful story.”
If you would like to participate in this Readings and Conversations series, please RSVP to Tracy Boyd at firstname.lastname@example.org. And you are encouraged to invite a friend – or two! Participants will be sent a Zoom link prior to each session.
