Unabridged Audiobook

Narrated By: Bryan Stevenson

Publisher: Listening Library (Audio)

Date: September 2018

Duration: 6 hours 36 minutes

Summary:

The young adult adaptation of the acclaimed, #1 New York Times bestseller Just Mercy--soon to be both a major motion picture starring Michael B. Jordan, Jaime Foxx, and Brie Larson and the subject of an upcoming HBO documentary feature.

In this very personal work--adapted from the original #1 bestseller, which the New York Times calls 'as compelling as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so'--acclaimed lawyer and social justice advocate Bryan Stevenson offers a glimpse into the lives of the wrongfully imprisoned and his efforts to fight for their freedom.

Stevenson's story is one of working to protect basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society--the poor wrongly convicted, and those whose lives have been marked by discrimination and marginalization. Through this adaptation, young people of today will find themselves called to action and compassion in the pursuit of justice.

Proceeds of this book will go to charity to help in Stevenson's important work to benefit the voiceless and the vulnerable as they attempt to navigate the broken U.S. justice system.
