It’s an age-old debate, “Which is better: the book or the movie?”
Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson, is the story of a gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.
Read or listen to the book, watch the movie, then join us online for a lively discussion. Brandon Henry, who works at The Clyde Theater in Langley, leads the discussion.
A book kit has been reserved for this title and you can pick up a copy of the book at the Freeland library. If that location is not convenient, let us know and we will send a copy to your local Sno-Isle library. You can check out the book starting the 1st day of the previous month (December) and keep it until the end of the current discussion month (January).
Digital copies of the book, audiobook, and movie may be available for downloading at www.sno-isle.org. Titles are also available on DVD. Many of the movies have long wait lists, so place a hold now for future titles!
A link to join the event via Zoom will be sent to registered participants the day of the event. If you don’t see the email by an hour before the event, check your spam folder. You can access Zoom in your computer’s browser, or download the app for free on an Apple or Android device. You do not need to have your own Zoom account in order to participate.
