JUST MERCY: A STORY OF JUSTICE AND REDEMPTION has been one of our best selling books since publication. It is a moving narrative of the injustice of our justice system that will resonate with readers of all ages and political leanings. The basic story explains in a brilliantly written fashion how frequently guilt or innocence is decided by wealth - or lack thereof. We love this book and believe every reader will become a cheerleader. It's the perfect gift for your fair-minded and smart friends and family members.
THIS COPY (shown below) was signed by Bryan Stevenson on the title page at the store.

BRYAN STEVENSON (pictured below from our Wall of Fame) is a MacArthur "Genius" Grant recipient and law professor at New York University who founded and is the Executive Director of The Equal Justice Initiative. In this capacity, he has freed many wrongly convicted innocent citizens from prisons around the country. One of his most famous victories released our friend Anthony Ray Hinton (The Sun Does Shine) after three decades on death row. He has argued (and won) at the Supreme Court of the United States on many occasions. We are so proud that the Equal Justice Initiative is located just an hour and a half down the road from our store. Visit the museum and go see the movie. Thank you Bryan Stevenson for signing our books.
