Living Literature: Just Mercy, May 10th at 6:30pm

Living Literature — the collective of RI-based artists and educators who teach literature through live performance — will visit the library for a presentation of the 2017 Reading Across Rhode Island selection, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson.

The event takes place Wednesday, May 10th at 6:30pm at the Brownell Library, and will feature a 50-minute readers’ theatre presentation of the book, which recounts the author’s time as a gifted young attorney, his founding of the Equal Justice Initiative, and explores the redeeming potential of mercy.
