Devil in the Grove and Gilbert.jpg

Be part of the Pulitzer Centennial celebration and join Friends of the Dallas Public Library to hear 2013 Non-Fiction Pulitzer author Gilbert King on Thursday, July 21 at 7 pm in the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library auditorium. King's book Devil in the Grove: Thurgood Marshall, the Groveland Boys, and the Dawn of a New America, was described by the Pulitzer Board as "a richly detailed chronicle of racial injustice in the Florida town of Groveland in 1949, involving four black men falsely accused of rape and drawing a civil-rights crusader, and eventual Supreme Court justice, into the legal battle."

This event is supported by a grant from Humanities Texas for the Pulitzer Prize Centennial Campfires Initiative.

This event is free, but seating is limited. Please RSVP below.
