Every year, MSU and the city of East Lansing launch the new academic year with the “One Book, One Community” program. Incoming freshmen are assigned to read a book before they arrive on campus, and city residents are encouraged to read the same book.

There will be a series of events to discuss the themes of the book, and the author is invited to speak. This year’s book is “Just Mercy” by Bryan Stevenson. He’s the founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative.

Current State’s Scott Pohl talks with Bryan Stevenson about his book and his work with death row inmates and those in prison for crimes they did not commit.
