May 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$35.10
Barnes & Noble welcomes Stacey Abrams in conversation with Robin Roberts to virtually discuss WHILE JUSTICE SLEEPS

About this event

“Stacey Abrams is a true novelist, and WHILE JUSTICE SLEEPS is a first-class legal thriller, favorably compared to many of the best, starting with The Pelican Brief, which it brings to mind. It’s fast-paced and full of surprises—a terrific read.”

—Scott Turow, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Presumed Innocent and The Last Trial

Barnes & Noble welcomes celebrated national leader and bestselling author Stacey Abrams for a live virtual event to discuss WHILE JUSTICE SLEEPS, her gripping, complexly plotted thriller set within the halls of the U.S. Supreme Court.

She’ll be in conversation with Robin Roberts, co-anchor of ABC’s “Good Morning America”.

WHILE JUSTICE SLEEPS is a cunningly crafted, sophisticated novel, layered with myriad twists and a vibrant cast of characters. Drawing on her astute inside knowledge of the court and political landscape, Stacey Abrams shows herself to be not only a force for good in politics and voter fairness but also a major new talent in suspense fiction.
