Copies of Angel of Death Row: My Life As a Death Penalty Defense Lawyer will be available for purchase, and Ms. Lyon will sign books. A wine reception will precede Ms. Lyon’s talk.

This trail-blazing attorney pioneered unconventional ways to defend clients against society’s ultimate punishment. Nineteen times, Ms. Lyon has argued to save a convicted murderer’s life, and 19 times she has succeeded.

Come to hear her answer to the perennial question, "How can you defend these people?”
