The System on Trial Gattis and Weinman

The System on Trial: Ryan Gattis & Sarah Weinman

June 03 at 8pm

Ryan Gattis’s The System and Sarah Weinman’s Scoundrel both take a powerful look at the criminal justice system in the United States. Through the immersive storytelling of a fictional crime in South LA, The System explores opposing viewpoints and illuminates an astonishingly real world of violence, from crime scene through to courtroom. Scoundrel recounts the bizarre real-life story of murderer Edgar Smith’s wrongful exoneration, and the prominent crusaders who, falling prey to his charm, helped to release him from death row. Join us in person for this enlightening discussion at the intersection of fiction and true crime, about criminal justice and consequence.
