Join the Duke Law Innocence Project in welcoming Benjamin Rachlin to discuss his new book, Ghost of the Innocent Man: A True Story of Trial and Redemption. Rachlin's debut chronicles the wrongful conviction and subsequent exoneration of Willie Grimes. NPR recently called it a gripping, "crisply written page turner," and Publisher's Weekly has named it one of the most anticipated books of the Fall. Rachlin will be joined by Mr. Grimes, who was exonerated in 2012 after being wrongly incarcerated for 24 years, and his attorney, Chris Mumma. Ghost of the Innocent Man also chronicles the creation of the NC Innocence Inquiry Commision, which was spearheaded by Ms. Mumma and Duke Law Professors Newman and Coleman. Lunch will be provided. Co-sponsored by Duke Law Innocence Project and DBA. For more information please contact Sarah Holsapple at email@example.com.
