MANITOWOC, Wis.  "Just Mercy,” written by Bryan Stevenson, will be the focus of the next Father Bill Zimmer Forum, which is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m. on Nov. 8 at Silver Lake College, 2406 S. Alverno Road.

The book group, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Endries Family Heritage Room, located on the second floor of the main building. The event is presented by Silver Lake College in collaboration with St. Francis of Assisi parish.

The book examines the systemic racism present in our criminal justice system, particularly related to the death penalty.

The presentation will be led by Dr. Eric Boos, an adjunct faculty member who teaches philosophy at Silver Lake College. Dr. Boos holds a Ph.D. in philosophy and a Doctor of Law degree.
