Books at the Bar, Thursday, Dec 1

Once again directing your attention to this terrific author series at The New York City Bar Association. Books at the Bar chair (and NY State judge AND NYSL member) Diane Kiesel says:

"Washington, DC author John A. Farrell, who will speak about his new biography, Clarence Darrow: Attorney for the Damned. If you think there is nothing new to say about old Clarence, you will learn you are quite wrong. The Farrell book is full of interesting, entertaining surprises about this legal icon."

The program begins at 6 PM with a wine and cheese reception (!) for the author, followed by a book talk, question and answer period, book sale and signing.

Thursday, Dec 1, 6pm
The City Bar Association, 42 West 44th Street (betw 5th and 6th avenues)
