Boston Book Festival (October 27)

If you love books and reading, you may be interested in the Boston Book Festival on Saturday, October 27. A few highlights of the festival:

  • Political Culture: NPR’s Tom Ashbrook moderates a conversation with Randall Kennedy, Lawrence Lessig, Michael Sandel and others on the state of political culture in the U.S.
  • Future of Reading: a discussion of technologists, publishers and writers about books and publishing in a digital age
  • Books Behind Bars: a discussion with former inmates and repesentatives of literary organizations that serve prison populations on the impact of books and reading in and out of prison

Check out the full schedule of events, times and locations here. Other than a few ticketed events, the sessions are free and open to the public.

Making time to read for pleasure can be a challenge for busy law students. This is one opportunity to explore books and ideas before the approach of exams tightens the time squeeze.
