"Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption" by Bryan Stevenson.

Monday, October 19 through Friday, November 6, 2015. Read by Cynthia Woodland.

This is a story, as the title says, of justice and redemption, but it’s more. It’s about the criminal justice system in this country, and about the death penalty…and about people. Mostly it’s about people.
