This event takes place at our Jersey City location.
WORD is proud to present Damien Echols and Lorri Davis for the paperback launch of Yours for Eternity, which collects the letters the authors wrote during their remarkable correspondence. After seeing a documentary on the West Memphis Three, Davis wrote to Echols, who had been wrongly condemned to death. It was the first of many letters, and part of a story that includes their marriage and Echols' eventual release from prison in 2011. “Reconstructed from thousands of letters the pair exchanged over 16 years, this tender and unusual narrative offers a rare, courageously intimate view of a love that should never have survived and yet did,” said Kirkus Reviews.
This event is free and open to the public, but reserved seats are sold out. Echols and Davis will be in conversation, and will sign books afterwards.
