  • WATERBURY, Conn. – Local author, speaker, and Freedom of Information advocate Andy Thibault will be on hand at a local bookstore to sign copies of his latest book “more COOL JUSTICE,” a second collection of hard-hitting essays credited with helping to free a woman unjustly convicted of first degree murder.

    Thibault, who was presented earlier this year with the Connecticut Council on Freedom of Information’s Stephen A. Collins Award, will be at The John Bale Book & Café Co., noon to 2 p.m., on Thursday Oct. 30. The store is at 158 Grand St., Waterbury. Phone: 203-757-2279.

    Novelist Chandra Prasad calls Thibault “Connecticut’s premiere journalistic warrior.” Wally Lamb says: “Thibault is a junkyard dog for justice who bares his teeth at pomposity and institutional unfairness and only bites the truly deserving.”

    In his foreword to “more COOL JUSTICE,” Andrew Kreig states “More than ever, the public needs bare-knuckle advocates...One such fighter is Andy Thibault, author of the superb more COOL JUSTICE. His fifth book exposes injustice much in the style of his Law and Justice in Everyday Life, which he authored in 2002 to much acclaim.”
