A Conversation with Dean Strang
Please join us at Kramerbooks for a conversation with lawyer and author Dean Strang. Strang became a household name when his representation of Steven Avery was featured in the Netflix miniseries Making A Murderer. Since then, he has been hard at work on his recent book, Keep the Wretches in Order: America’s Biggest Mass Trial, the Rise of the Justice Department, and the Fall of the IWW, the story of the largest mass trial in American History against labor activists during World War II. We will discuss the book and the development of the modern Justice Department. Click here to RSVP.
