“Fight of the Century” is a collaboration between the ACLU and authors Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman. Timed to the ACLU's centennial, it includes essays by Salman Rushdie, Jesmyn Ward and dozens of other writers on landmark legal cases, from Roe v. Wade to Brown v. Board of Education.
Other audio narrators will include Michael C. Hall, Alison Pill and Judith Light.
The audio, printed and digital editions of “Fight of the Century” will be published next week by divisions of Simon & Schuster.
