Frederic Block reads and signs RACE TO JUDGMENT at WBW! @ Weller Book Works
Sep 14 @ 7:00 pm
Frederic Block reads and signs RACE TO JUDGMENT at WBW! @ Weller Book Works |  |  |

On September 14, WBW welcomes Judge Frederic Block for a reading and signing of RACE TO JUDGMENT!

RACE TO JUDGMENT is a “reality-fiction” debut novel loosely based on a number of high-profile cases handled by its author, a federal trial court judge, over his 23 years on the federal bench in Brooklyn—such as the Crown Heights riots and the Peter Gotti trial. It tracks the rise of the fictional African-American civil rights protagonist Ken Williams (in real life, the recently deceased Brooklyn DA Ken Thompson) from his days as an Assistant United States Attorney through his meteoric rise to unseat the long-term, corrupt Brooklyn DA because of a spate of phony convictions against black defendants, including another one of the judge’s real cases (JoJo Jones in the book) for the murder of a Hasidic rabbi. Williams’ dramatic courtroom antics (with the aid of his colorful private eye) results in JoJo’s exoneration after 16 years behind bars. In addition, Williams defends a young black guidance counselor accused of killing the rabbi’s son many years ago, and champions the cause of a young Hasidic woman raped by her father. As a hobby, Williams plays jazz piano and writes country songs—written by the author—which are reproduced in the book.

Judge Frederic Block was appointed United States District Judge for the Eastern District of New York on September 29, 1994, and entered duty on October 31, 1994. He assumed senior status on September 1, 2005. He received a Bachelor’s Degree from Indiana University in 1956, and an LL.B. Degree from Cornell Law School in 1959.

During his twenty-three years on the bench, Judge Block has presided over a number of high-profile cases, including the trials of former Bear Stearns hedge fund managers Ralph Cioffi and Matthew Tannin, Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff, Peter Gotti, Lemrick Nelson and nightclub magnate Peter Gatien.

He regularly sits by designation on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Block recently authored the best-selling book entitled DISROBED: An Inside Look at the Life and Work of a Federal Trial Judge. He also co-authored the 1985 off-Broadway musical Professionally Speaking (music and lyrics). He has likewise published articles on a variety of legal topics, including Tales of an “Active” Senior Judge, ABA Litigation Journal, Spring 2011; Reflections on Guns and Jury Nullification – And Judicial Nullification, The Champion, July 2009; Senior Status: An “Active” Senior Judge Corrects Some Common Misunderstandings, 92 Cornell L. Rev. 533 (2007); and Civil Liberties during National Emergencies: The Interactions between the Three Branches of Government in Coping with Past and Current Threats to the Nation’s Security, 29 N.Y.U. Rev. L. & Soc. Change 459 (2005). He was also a contributing author for Perspectives on 9/11 (Yassin El-Ayouty ed., 2004), and for the New York State Bar Association’s textbook Federal Civil Practice. In 2007, he penned a New York Times op-ed addressing the financial burdens of death penalty prosecutions.

Books and Bridges at WBW: Nathan Devir @ Weller Book Works
Sep 20 @ 6:30 pm
Books and Bridges at WBW: Nathan Devir @ Weller Book Works |  |  |

It’s our next Books and Bridges event! On September 20, WBW welcomes Nathan Devir and his presentation “Strained Boundaries: Exclusivism versus Pluralism in the Literature of Chaim Potok”.

The award-winning novelist and rabbi Chaim Potok often referred to himself as a zwischenmensch (Yiddish: an “in-between person”) with respect to his own religious and social identity; and the characters that populate his novels also exhibit this same existential malaise. Finding Orthodox Judaism too restrictive, and secular American culture too permissive, they are unable to belong wholeheartedly to either milieu. This lecture by University of Utah Jewish Studies professor Nathan Devir will use Potok’s literary works to showcase what it means to be an “in-between person” in modern society, regardless of one’s particular faith group, especially when the loyalty to that group often proves difficult to reconcile with the freedom to explore one’s own personal spiritual and artistic visions allowed for in secular culture.

This event is organized by Books & Bridges — a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious, or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics, and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.

Unique Stories of the Yellowstone Wolf Reintroduction @ Patagonia Outlet
Sep 20 @ 7:00 pm
Unique Stories of the Yellowstone Wolf Reintroduction @ Patagonia Outlet |  |  |

Our guest presenter for the Wasatch Packtivists meeting is Lynn Weston, a naturalist with extensive experience teaching at the Yellowstone Institute beginning in 2000. Lynn will present “Unique Stories of the Yellowstone Wolf Reintroduction.” The return of wolves to Yellowstone is clearly one of the most dramatic events in ecological history, but there are many personal, unique and unknown stories during that time that are truly captivating and exciting. Prepare for some surprises as we explore these stories surrounding the reintroduction and issues regarding the Crystal Creek acclamation pen during 1995. Lynn is currently working with an YF Institute class entitled “Wolves: Mythology and Reality.” Lynn became involved in the wolf Environmental Impact Statement in 1994 and was one of the first to assist the researchers and biologists in wolf location, pack behavior, and wolf dynamics in 1996. When not in Yellowstone, Lynn volunteers at the Ogden Nature Center assisting with school programs in field ecology and recently developed a docent program. Free and open to the public.
