Justice Breyer lecture will draw crowd

An appearance Tuesday night by Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will be widely attended, so much so, the event had to be moved to accommodate a larger crowd.

The event, originally scheduled at the Clinton Presidential Center, has been moved to the Statehouse Convention Center. The lecture will take place in the Wally Allen Ballroom from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Justice Breyer will discuss his book, "Making Our Democracy Work: A Judge's View", which focuses one chapter on Little Rock's 1957 desegregation crisis at Central High School.

A book signing will follow the lecture.

President Bill Clinton appointed Breyer to the high court in 1994.
