Washington and Lee Law professors Mark Drumbl and David Eggert will lend their literary opinions and legal insights as part of a panel discussing William Golding’s classic novel Lord of the Flies next Thursday, March 5 at an event hosted by the W&L Law Library. W&L Sociology and Anthropology professor Lynn Chin will also be a panelist, and law librarian Andrew Christensen will moderate the discussion.
The event is the sixth annual program of its type. A book with both popular appeal and legal aspects is promoted for pleasure reading among the W&L Law community, and then discussed by faculty from the Law School, other University departments, and the audience. Prior selections include To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, All the President’s Men by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, and most recently in 2019, Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson.
The event will take place in Classroom A of the Law School (Lewis Hall), from 5:00 to 6:00pm on Thursday, March 5. Light refreshments will be provided. The event is free and open to all members of the University community.
