The program is sponsored by Iola Reads to go along with the reading of the current selection “Getting Life” by Michael Morton. Floyd Bledsoe is a Kansan who, like Michael Morton, spent time in prison convicted of a murder he did not commit. He will be speaking on Monday night, along with Jean Phillips of the Project for Innocence at the University of Kansas School of Law.
