Lenox: Book discussion with 'The Hanging Judge' author


The sentencing of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in the Boston Marathon bombings brought up many questions about execution in a non-death penalty state.

The Honorable Michael A. Ponsor, who presided over an earlier federal case tried in Massachusetts involving the death penalty, wrote a novel to invite conversation on the issue.

Ponsor will discuss his book, "The Hanging Judge," at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27, at The Lenox Library. The talk is free and the public is invited.

Ponsor's novel, which received the 2015 Golden Pen Award from the Legal Writing Institute and honorable mention from the Massachusetts Center for the Book, will be available for purchase and signing.
