The Law Library of Congress will commemorate Constitution Day with a book talk by Michael J. Klarman, Kirkland & Ellis Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. Klarman will discuss and sign his book, “The Framers’ Coup: The Making of the United States Constitution” (Oxford University Press, 2016), which is a comprehensive history of how the Framers drafted and ratified the United States Constitution despite their clashing interests. The book was a finalist for the George Washington Book Prize and the American Bar Association’s Silver Gavel Award. Klarman has won numerous awards for his teaching and scholarship in the areas of constitutional law and constitutional history.
