Author Talk: Laura Little

Wed, February 27, 2019 6:30 P.M.
Philadelphia City Institute

Professor Laura E. Little will present her book Guilty Pleasures:  Law and Comedy in America and sign copies of the book, which will be available for purchase.  Guilty Pleasures is a multifaceted account of American law and humor that explores the constraints on humor, humor’s effect on law, and humor about law.  Laura E. Little is the James G. Schmidt Professor of Law at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law.  She is a First Amendment, Constitutional Law, and Conflict of Laws scholar, and was a law clerk to the Chief Justice of the United States, William H. Rehnquist (U.S. Supreme Court).

Program co-sponsored by Friends in the City (FitC) and the library.

This program will be held on the library’s lower level; we regret that there is no elevator.
