If you are tired of telling yourself, "I have a hard time sitting down and reading the latest books on the bestseller list or books people have recommended to me or that I've found of interest, bought and are still sitting on my shelf", join our group. Not only will you read a plethora of books that you might never have read, you'll also get a chance to discuss them with other lesbians! This group is for women who love women. The goal of this group is to discuss books of all genres (with an emphasis on women's or lesbian themes) and to meet other lesbians in a fun, safe, and social environment.
Hi! This month we'll be reviewing: Just Mercy. A Story of Justice and Redemption, by Bryan Stevenson.
"Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a nonprofit law office in Montgomery, Alabama, dedicated to defending the poor, the incarcerated, and the wrongly condemned.
Just Mercy tells the story of EJI, from the early days with a small staff facing the nation’s highest death sentencing and execution rates, through a successful campaign to challenge the cruel practice of sentencing children to die in prison, to revolutionary projects designed to confront Americans with our history of racial injustice.
An unforgettable true story...."
