Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Defending JacobTitle to be discussed: Defending Jacob by William Landay.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, May 12, 6:30 pm.  Summary: "Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than twenty years. When a shocking crime shatters his New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his fourteen-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student. As the crisis reveals how little a father knows about his son, Andy will face a trial of his own--between loyalty and justice, between truth and allegation, between a past he's tried to bury and a future he cannot conceive."
