Buechner Institute Lecture by Michael Perry at the Bristol Public Library

January 28, 2013

One of the more pressing concerns of our time is the relationship between faith and culture. The Buechner Institute at King was founded in 2008 to address this vital issue while also paying tribute to the American writer and Presbyterian minister, Frederick Buechner. Michael John Perry specializes in Constitutional Law and Human Rights. He is the author of 11 books and more than 75 articles and essays. His most recent book is The Political Morality of Liberal Democracy: The Constitution, the Courts, and Human Rights, published in 2010. Perry began his teaching career at the Ohio State University College of Law. Since 2003, Perry has held the distinguished Robert W. Woodruff University Chair at Emory University, where he teaches law. Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, he did his undergraduate studies at Georgetown University and studied law at Columbia University. In 1999, Perry was awarded an LL.D. (honoris causa) by St. John's University, Collegeville, Minnesota. Michael Perry will be speaking at the Bristol Public Library on February 4 at 7pm.
