A year after the U.S. Supreme Court made LGBT history by overturning Proposition 8, California's same-sex marriage ban, Books Inc. and the San Francisco LGBT Community Center host the lawyers who argued the case in a celebration of their victory. David Boies and Theodore B. Olson — lawyers who were hailed by Time magazine in 2010 as two of the most influential people in the world — will be discussing their book, Redeeming the Dream: The Case for Marriage Equality. Boies has argued some of the most important cases in recent history, such as Westmoreland v. CBS and Bush v. Gore. Olson, the country's most prominent appellate attorney, has argued multiple cases before the Supreme Court, including Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. Redeeming the Dream recounts the incredible story of Olson and Boies' five-year struggle for LGBT rights, which resulted in the proposition's 2013 defeat. Don't miss what is sure to be a fascinating presentation.
