D.C. Book Event for Fifth Circuit Judge Leslie Southwick

Fifth Circuit judge Leslie M. Southwick has published a very interesting memoir on his long path to his seat, The Nominee: A Political and Spiritual Journey. (Longtime readers may recall that I wrote extensively about Judge Southwick’s 2007 confirmation battle and the outrageous smears against him, including in this essay.)

I’m pleased to pass along that the Ethics and Public Policy Center (my organization) and the Catholic Information Center will be co-sponsoring a book event for Judge Southwick on Tuesday evening, February 25. See here for more information or to RSVP.

I hope to find time to write more about the book in advance of the event.
