Reading Across Rhode Island, Rhode Island's only One Book, One State community read program is kicking off its 15th year with the 2017 title: Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson.
An unforgettable true story about the redeeming potential of mercy. Bryan Stevenson was a gifted young attorney when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending the poor, the wrongly condemned, and those trapped in the furthest reaches of our criminal justice system.
Join us Sunday, January 29 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm at the Providence Public Library for an engaging panel discussion around the book's themes of
proximity, understanding, and justice led by
Reading Across Rhode Island Honorary Chairs Judge Judith Colenback Savage and Judge Edward C. Clifton, both retired trial justices of the Rhode Island Superior Court and Distinguished Jurists in Residence at Roger Williams University School of Law.
Tickets are $15 and include one copy of the book. Light refreshments will be provided. For more information visit
