    • Written Law: A Conversation Between Lawyer Authors Michael Meltsner and Daniel Medwed

      Main Library, Community Room, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      Join Michael Meltsner and Daniel Medwed for a reading followed by a conversation and audience Q&A. Meltsner, the lawyer in famous civil rights cases, including Mohammad Ali’s, and the University Distinguished Professor of Law at Northeastern, is presenting his new novel, Mosaic: Who Paid for the Bullet? It tells the story of a 1960s murder of a charismatic woman doctor who courted danger trying to dismantle a racially segregated health care system in a large southern city. Medwed is a law professor and a WGBH legal analyst. His new novel, Barred, is an exposé of how our legal system makes it nearly impossible to overturn wrongful convictions. He argues that our justice system’s stringent procedural rules are largely to blame for the ongoing punishment of the innocent. Offering clear explanations of legal procedures alongside heart-wrenching stories of their devastating impact, Barred exposes how the system is stacked against the innocent and makes a powerful call for change. Registration is required.
