Mario Marazziti presents Thirteen Ways of Looking at the Death Penalty, in conversation with Paul Elie
Apr 6, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm| Free
Italian journalist and legislator Mario Marazziti, co-founder of the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, achieves what might sound impossible: a book about the death penalty that takes on this weightiest of subjects in a charming and intimate way. Thirteen Ways of Looking at the Death Penalty brings home the vast numbers of people impacted and why the stakes are high, not only for those on Death Row but for us all. Marazziti talks with Fort Greene neighbor Paul Elie (author of The Life You Save May Be Your Own and Reinventing Bach), who also wrote the book’s stirring afterword. Join us for a discussion that may challenge your perspective on the ultimate punishment in ways that will surprise you.
