Scot Turow Comes to Fairfax
Have you read A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest Gaines yet?
That’s The Big Read/All Fairfax Reads book selection for 2009. Whether or not you’ve read it yet, don’t miss Scott Turow this Friday, Oct. 9 in the Board Auditorium at the Fairfax County Government Center. He will present “Confessions of a Death Penalty Agnostic” as part of The Big Read/All Fairfax Reads. Turow, the best-selling author of many novels including Presumed Innocent and Ordinary Heroes, is also the author of Ultimate Punishment: A Lawyer’s Reflections on Dealing with the Death Penalty. There’s no registration required for this event and books will be available for sale and signing. For more information visit the Web site. The Big Read is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Arts Midwest.
“I always say that I don't criticize anybody's position on the death penalty because I've held all of them.” ~ Scott Turow
