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 be offered throughout the 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 are available for purchase in the UR Spider Shop and University Bookstore.
