Several branches of the Madison Public Library are hosting book discussions of Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy in the next few months. Stevenson’s book has received much publicity and acclaim since its publication, and it has sparked discussions about social justice and activism at UW-Madison and in the wider Madison community.
Copies of the book are available in hardcover, as a book on CD, and electronically via Overdrive as an ebook or as an mp3 audiobook (which you can access from your iPad, iPhone, iPod, Android phone, tablet, etc.) via the Overdrive app.
