An evening with Author and Professor of Law, Amy D. Ronner, as she discusses her newest release, Dostoevsky and the Law, based on the great Russian novelist, Fyodor Dostoevsky, and his timeless masterpieces. By earning her place on the prestigious Author Event calendar at Books & Books Coral Gables, she joins the ranks of 200 other acclaimed authors including Hillary Clinton, who have had their In-store Reading at the same location. Through a legal lens, this book examines several of Dostoevsky’s works, including Crime and Punishment, The Double, Notes from the House of the Dead, Demons, and Brothers Karamazov, to show how they transmit relevant and timely messages about our mental capacity doctrine, confessions, legal system, and prisons.
