This Year's Featured Book

"Passion, commitment, justice, brutality, the defense of the condemned. In Just Mercy, Bryan Stevenson sears the reader in his telling of his fight as a young lawyer for social justice on behalf of the poor and the disadvantaged. Just Mercy grips you like the best of novels, bringing you into the lives of the most desperate of people caught in systems of imperfect justice. Stevenson makes us despair that just mercy is beyond our reach, but fills us with glimmers of hope that it is also always within our grasp. Just Mercy is about human suffering and guilt, about the morality of punishment, about poverty and the law, and about the possibilities for heroic action in an imperfect world."
----Professor Alan Tansman, East Asian Languages and Cultures, member of the 2016 On the Same Page Faculty Selection Committee
