Dean Abramson to moderate Krakauer book discussion

Dean Larry Abramson will moderate a discussion with Jon Krakauer about his recently released book, “Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town,” at the DoubleTree Hotel May 6.

“I’m happy to be part of this important discussion,” Abramson said. “It may be an uncomfortable topic, but many people have told me they’re glad it’s happening right here in town.”

The book’s title sparked controversy among some Missoulians who worried it would paint a negative image of the city.

Fact & Fiction Bookstore is hosting the event, which is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the discussion will follow at 7 p.m.
