Stuart Taylor, co-author with KC Johnson of the acclaimed Until Proven Innocent, will speak at Duke this Friday at 7 PM. The public is invited. Admission is free.

Until Proven Innocent is a riveting account of the attempted frame-up of the Duke lacrosse players by a rogue DA and others with the enablement of media, academics and "rights groups" the public had a right to expect would instead tell us the truth.

Taylor's 7 PM talk will be in Love Auditorium in the Love Science Research Building on West Campus. It will be preceded by a book signing at 6 PM

An excellent map, which locates Love SRB as well as Duke Chapel and the Bryan Parking deck is here. From the Bryan Parking Deck it's an easy, five-minute walk to Love. That area of campus is well-lit and has a good deal of foot traffic.

I've heard Taylor speak a number of times. He's been informed, engaging and to the point.

Taylor interacts well with his audiences so I hope there'll be a Q&A. I suspect there will be, but I'm not sure at this point. I'll let you know what I find out.

Taylor's talk is sponsored by Duke Students for an Ethical Duke.

Final word: You notice that once you leave the parking deck, it's an easy five-minute walk to Love?

You're not going to pass up an opportunity like that, are you?

For those with a Duke Alumni card, it will operate the gates of many of the gated lots after 5 pm. Don't know if it works on the lot next to the Physics building but I'm going to give it a try.
