Another book I should like to read

A couple of times, I've seen a fellow named Garrett Epps on C-SPAN, most recently in relation to a book about the Fourteenth Amendment, called Democracy Reborn: The Fourteenth Amendment and the Fight for Equal Rights in Post-Civil War America.

And, I've wondered, is this fellow kin to John Epps, who I know from Board of Governors of The Virginia Bar Association?

Not having the moxie to ask, I've discovered for myself that the answer is yes, and here is what Professor Epps wrote on the passing of their father, Richmond lawyer A.C. Epps - worth reading, even if you never heard of any Richmonders named Epps.
