Robert Bluth, author of "Muni Court: A View from the Other Side of the Bench," will speak tonight at the Ashland library, 410 Siskiyou Blvd.

Bluth, an attorney who has served as a municipal court judge for two small, rural towns in Jackson County for more than 16 years, reads from his book from 7 to 8 p.m.

The book sharing his experiences recounts the small dramas of ordinary people brought into court, showcasing human ingenuity, ineptness, self-rationalization, and much unintended humor, promoters said.

The presentation is sponsored by the Friends of the Ashland Public Library. For more information, please call the library at 541-774-6996.
