One question it will inevitably raise, Landay added, “is how far does a parent’s responsibility go to protect their own child, but also what is the responsibility of a citizen to protect society. “
William Landay will speak about “Defending Jacob,’’ at 7 p.m. on July 25 at the Duxbury Free Library. The event is sponsored by Westwinds Bookshop of Duxbury.
