Actor, Activist, Writer

Mike Farrell, whose career and civic involvements have been chronicled in my column over the years, has now written about it in “Just Call Me Mike: A Journey to Actor and Activist” (AKASHIC Books). He recently won the NACDL Humanitarian Award from the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the San Diego ACLU’s “Champion of Civil Rights” award. On Friday, March 2, he emcees the Death Penalty Focus in Sacramento, and on March 3 he’s   at the L.A. Archdiocese of the Catholic Church’s Religious Education Congress at the Anaheim Convention Center. At both events he joins Sister Helen Prejean (“Dead Man Walking”). Farrell, a longtime foe of issues including the death penalty, says he also condemns “the excesses” of the Catholic Church and will talk about it at these venues before heading out on a 30-city cross-country tour with his book and wife Shelley Fibers.
