A Lesson Before Dying Quizzes & Trivia

Some people are familiar with this book. Some of them may even consider this their favorite, especially if they find the story very compelling. This is a fictional book but this was somehow based on the story of Willie Francis. Francis is a young black man who was given the sentence to die on the electric chair. Some may say that this was controversial back in 1993 but back then, deaths of high-profile inmates were being televised in some countries.

The news then was more honest, and it showed the way that people are living. Right now, the news is still very heartbreaking but there is a bit of restraint with the information that is being shared. You may realize while reading the book that perhaps you should make a difference with how you live because you are going to die anyway.
