VIRTUAL - Ian Manuel | My Time Will Come: A Memoir of Crime, Punishment, Hope, and Redemption

When Ian Manuel was 13 years old he shot a young mother of two in the face during a botched robbery. Sentenced to life imprisonment, he spent the next 26 years in prison, 18 of them in solitary confinement. He was released at the age of 40 through both the help of his victim—with whom he had struck up a friendship as profound as it was unlikely—and through the legal assistance of Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative. In My Time Will Come, Manuel tells not just his story of a childhood spent in deprivation, his incarceration, and his ultimate redemption, but a larger story of the power of the human spirit over a justice system that too often sentences young offenders of color to life without parole.
