Called the “greatest counterculture lawyer of his time,” J. Tony Serra is a criminal-defense wizard whose reputation as a passionate defender of minorities and the underrepresented is known far and wide in legal circles. Courtroom sketch artist Paulette Frankl took note of Serra’s cases, and began a 10-year research project into his life, philosophies and working methods. The result is Lust for Justice, a biography which eloquently captures Serra’s renegade approach to law while painting the judicial system as a merciless steamroller for minorities. Frankl and Serra both appear on Saturday, March 12, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 4pm. Free. 415.927.0960.
