Dead Man Walking

Want to get informed about the death penalty debate? Check out the library’s latest display of books, videos, and government documents on this controversial issue in the lobby.

Our display coincides with the USF College Players’ performance of Dead Man Walking this weekend, Friday, December 11 and Saturday, December 12, at 8pm in Studio Theater (Lone Mountain). Admission is free. This production is part of the Dead Man Walking School Theatre Project. Since 2003, over 170 high schools and colleges in the U.S. have produced the play and led campus-wide discussions and events to call attention to the debate.

Additional resources on the death penalty are available on the School Theatre Project site as well as information about how to take action.

The library owns Dead Man Walking, the Pulitzer Prize nominated book by Sister Helen Prejean, and the DVD of the feature film.
