One Book, One Richmond

The 2015-16 One Book, One Richmond book selection is Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. 

Just Mercy is a powerful true story about an idealistic lawyer’s coming of age, a moving portrait of those he defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of justice. The book serves as a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice — from one of the most influential lawyers of our time.

Programs based on themes found in the book will again be offered next year, including a lecture by the author in February 2016. 

Digital, audio, and hard copies of Just Mercy are available for check out in Boatwright Library and the Law Library and will soon be available for purchase in the UR Bookstore.

The committee will be hard at work over the summer planning next year's events and programs so be sure to add Just Mercy to your summer reading list!
