Alan Dershowitz, Lawyer for Julian Assange, At GW Tonight

DershowitzAlan Dershowitz, activist, writer, maddening TV personality, and lawyer to such luminaries as O.J. Simpson, Mike Tyson, Leona Helmsley, Patty Hearst -and now Julian Assange -will be signing his new book tonight, Taking the Stand, at George Washington University’s Jack Morton Auditorium. The event, part of Politics and Prose‘s “The Newsmakers Series” and co-sponsored with GW Lisner, starts at 7:00 and tickets are $25 ($20 if you’re a PaP member).

From the New York Timesreview of Dershowitz’ book:

The list of legal issues and controversies that bear Dershowitz’s thumbprints is breathtaking. That one man involved himself in the Pentagon Papers case, the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal, Kennedy’s Chappaquiddick investigation, Sharansky’s release from a Soviet prison, the O. J. trial, Bush v. Gore, the Mike Tyson rape case, the Israel/Palestinian dispute, the Woody Allen-Mia Farrow custody dispute, the Julian Assange WikiLeaks investigation and the public debate over Trayvon Martin, reflects not just the breadth of Dershowitz’s experience but also its depth and duration. Love him or hate him, Dershowitz has lived a life that matters, hugely and enduringly. He is a man in full at a time when most of us aspire to be little more than a presence on Twitter.
