PWAC Quebec members are asked to report for jury duty to mark the official Montreal launch of Justice Miscarried: Inside Wrongful Convictions in Canada by Helena Katz.
The book has already received some ink in the St. John’s Telegram (front page, no less), Winnipeg Free Press and the Sherwood Park News.
Attendees can expect the usual reading and signing that accompany a book launch, but will also be treated to a special game of “You Be the Jury.” Two actors will present a case from the point of view of a Crown prosecutor and a defense lawyer. Participants will weigh in with their opinions as to the verdict. A fun-filled evening is certain, as long as you tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Please feel free to contact Helena Katz about the event, particularly if you wish to swear on your own bible.
