More Reading

These pages have only introduced a few ways to consider how the law intersects with literature, how some books approach these concepts, and how everyone can become a more fair-minded person through reading literature. Undoubtedly, your local library will have many more books that apply to law and literature. Ask your librarian for recommendations!
