On Tuesday, September 8th at 2:30 pm PDT, trial lawyer and author James Boswtick will speak with Commonwealth Club members and the public about his legal thriller, Acts of Omission, and what it was like to take on a San Francisco icon.
The live-streamed event is free and the public can register here.
The Commonwealth Club of California is the nation’s oldest and largest public affairs forum. Every year, the Commonwealth Club Club presents more than 450 forums on topics ranging across politics, culture, society, and the economy.
Bostwick will outline the story and what it was like as a young, struggling attorney who took on one of the most famous lawyers in the country to seek justice for a devastatingly injured teenager. It is a tale of love, friendship, sex, and betrayal that also paints an authentic picture of the risk, dilemmas, and tactics involved in high stakes litigation.
Bostwick will provide insights into this complex and competitive arena. He will also discuss the genesis and inspiration for his novel, as well as the writing process and how to get published—what works and what doesn’t.
James Bostwick has been a San Francisco trial lawyer specializing in catastrophic injuries for more than 40 years. He obtained the largest medical malpractice verdict in U.S. history and is recognized as one of the top 100 trial lawyers in the U.S. His first novel, Acts of Omission, was nominated for the 2020 Harper Lee Legal Fiction Award and is under contract to soon be a movie.
Acts of Omission is available in hardcover (almost sold out), paperback, e-book and as an audiobook. Order from your local bookstore or on Bookshop.org, Barnes & Noble or Amazon.com. For audiobooks, you can find it on Libro.fm and Audible.
