Along with friends and colleagues at Seattle Theatre Group, we present this timely evening with former federal prosecutor Preet Bharara. His most recent position with the Southern District of New York has given him quite the vantage point for where we are now, which he chronicles in his new book, Doing Justice: A Prosecutor’s Thoughts on Crime, Punishment, and the Rule of Law (Knopf).
“Bright with anecdotes from his lengthy and illustrious career, Bharara’s razor-edge judgments about punishment, procedure, outcome, and outlook address issues of governance and moral grounding that form the crux of the nature of justice. Bharara speaks with a clear, firm, and engaging voice in this essential primer about the importance of a fair and open justice system.” —Booklist.
“Like the best lawyers (and writers), Preet Bharara tells a good war story. But Doing Justice is a great deal more—a vivid memoir of a critical job, a primer on the toughest questions of prosecutorial ethics, and a reminder of the drama inherent in life in the courtroom arena.” —Jeffrey Toobin.
Co-presented with SEATTLE THEATRE GROUP/STG. For tickets ($34.50 plus fee, which includes a copy of Doing Justice) and more information, please see www.stgpresents.org.
