Good Kids, Bad City Book Reading Staff Pick

When: Wed., Feb. 20 2019
A former Scene staff writer who now works for the Washington Post, Kyle Swenson returns to town today to discuss his new book, Good Kids, Bad City: A Story of Race and Wrongful Conviction in America. In it, Swenson recounts the wrongful convictions and eventual exonerations of Ricky Jackson, Wiley Bridgeman and Kwame Ajamu, situating the story in the framework of politics, race and criminal justice in Cleveland from the 1970s through today. Swenson wrote a story for Scene that was pivotal to the three men's release from jail. He speaks today at noon at the City Club and at 7 p.m. at Visible Voice Books. Both events are free. (Niesel)
