Stacey Abrams in Conversation With Katie Couric (Ticketed Virtual Event)

May 14 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$28
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

From celebrated national leader and bestselling author Stacey Abrams comes While Justice Sleeps (Doubleday), a gripping, complexly plotted thriller set within the halls of the U.S. Supreme Court. Avery Keene, a brilliant young law clerk for the legendary Justice Howard Wynn, is doing her best to hold her life together. When the shocking news breaks that Justice Wynn has slipped into a coma, Avery’s life turns upside down. As political wrangling ensues in Washington to potentially replace the ailing judge, Avery begins to unravel a carefully constructed, chess-like sequence of clues left behind by Wynn. 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. Abrams will be joined in conversation by Katie Couric, award-winning journalist, New York Times bestselling author, and a co-founder of Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C).
