      Evening with Bryan Stevenson

      For more than 30 years Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, Ala., has fought for the rights of the poor, the incarcerated and the condemned. He wrote about one such case, that of Walter McMillian, an African-American man sentenced to die for a murder he insisted he didn’t commit, in his book Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption.

      Stevenson’s work in criminal justice reform made him a natural choice for the inaugural speaker in a new lecture series that aims to drive community dialogue and bring topical issues to the forefront. “We are thrilled to announce Bryan Stevenson as the first speaker in the Mary S. Stern Lecture Series,” said Dr. Peter Stern, chair of the Mary S. Stern Lecture Committee and Library Foundation board member. “His work and advocacy is fundamental to how my mom viewed the world.”

      The Mary S. Stern Lecture featuring Stevenson is presented courtesy of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, in Procter & Gamble Hall at the Aronoff Center for the Arts. The Mary S. Stern lecture is made possible through an endowment to The Library Foundation of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. Tickets are $5 and go on sale 10 a.m. Aug. 5 at cincinnatiarts.org, 513-621-ARTS (2787) and the CAA Ticket Offices at the Aronoff Center.

      Cost: Payment required - 5.00
