Northeast Library offers a series of author talks starting on Wednesday, October 27.  The first in this series is "Justice Brennan:  Liberal Champion" by Seth Stern, co-authored by Stephen Wermiel.   This title has received many favorable reviews and is described by Publishers Weekly as “what will likely be the definitive biography of Supreme Court Justice Brennan (1906 - 1997).”  Justice Brennan was instrumental in several controversial decisions, including Roe v. Wade, affirmative action, the death penalty and obscenity law.
