The Virtual Book Club

Throughout the year, we gather together for "teach-ins" over Zoom to discuss books about the death penalty. Each book features the voice of someone impacted by capital punishment, or a topic connected to death penalty alternatives. We occasionally have authors tune into our talks. Check out our upcoming events and join us for the conversation!
