The Road to Innocence: Roger Dean Gillispie
Where: Scheben Branch
When: October 19 at 6:30 p.m.
For most of us, the only time we see an innocent person go to prison for a crime s/he didn't commit is in the pages of a novel or on a movie screen. For Roger Dean Gillispie it was real life. Meet Mr. Gillispie as he shares the experience of serving 20 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit.
Please register for this program so we can make accommodations for everyone.
The Road to Innocence is presented as part of the Library's involvement in the National Endowment for the Arts Big Read. This year's Big Read title is A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines. A free copy of A Lesson Before Dying will be given to the first 100 people in attendance, and we encourage everyone to read the book tied to themes of race, justice, and dying with dignity.
