Paul Butler discusses and signs copies of "Let's Get Free: A Hip-Hop Theory of Justice." Tonight. 7 p.m. A Cappella Books, 484 Moreland Ave. L5P. 404-681-5128. www.acappellabooks.com.-

Per the press release:-

Paul Butler enters the conversation on prison reform with a unique perspective.  A Harvard-educated former federal prosecutor, he once found himself on the other side of the law, convicted of a crime he didn't commit.  Armed with the breadth of that experience, his first book, Let's Get Free: A Hip-Hop Theory of Justice, is a powerful new inquiry into the US justice system and the cultural values that uphold it.-

The American Civil Liberties Union calls Let's Get Free, "a provocative and intelligent analysis of U.S. justice. Butler has a fresh and thought-provoking perspective on issues like the war on drugs, snitches, and whether locking so many people up really makes Americans safer. Butler's compelling writing makes Let's Get Free a great read, and his insightful analysis has the potential to make the United States a more just society."-
Paul Butler is a law professor at Georgetown University and a regular commentator for CNN and NPR and contributes to the Washington Post.-
