BookTowne in Manasquan will host Trenton attorney and former state assemblyman, John W. Hartmann, on Friday, January 11 at 5:30 p.m.
Hartmann will talk about his memoir Jacket: The Trials of a New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney. Described by the publisher as a provocative and bitingly funny memoir, this book provides a candid and humorous look inside the state's fractious criminal justice system and Trenton politics. A book signing will follow.
John Hartmann paints a vivid picture of the New Jersey Way of prosecuting and defending persons accused of crimes, according to Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University. George called Jacket a raucous ride through the New Jersey criminal court system.
For more information about this talk, please contact BookTowne at 732-722-7255. The bookstore is located at 171 Main Street in Manasquan.
