I can finally announce this: Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy is the winner of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize for Nonfiction. Jeff Hobbs’s The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace is the runner-up. As the judge for this category, along with Faith Adiele, I can attest that these books will change your life. All six finalists were outstanding. I was honored to have been asked to be part of this worthy contest.
