Event details at City Lights <http://tinyurl.com/cpn8e3>  (copied in below)

"In /*Jailhouse Lawyer*s/, award-winning journalist and death-row inmate 
Mumia Abu-Jamal presents the stories and reflections of fellow 
prisoners-turned-advocates who have learned to use the court system to 
represent other prisoners---many uneducated or illiterate---and, in some 
cases, to win their freedom. In Abu-Jamal's words, "This is the story of 
law learned, not in the ivory towers of multi-billion-dollar endowed 
universities [but] in the bowels of the slave-ship, in the dank dungeons 
of America."

Includes an introduction by Angela Y. Davis."

"/Expert and well-reasoned commentary on the justice system. . . . His 
writings are dangerous./"---/The Village Voice
