In "Love Wins," authors Jim Obergefell and Debbie Cenziper reveal the story behind the landmark decision legalizing same-sex marriage.

Last June in the landmark case, Obergefell v. Hodges, the U.S. Supreme Court  held that the right to marry is guaranteed to same sex couples under the Fourteenth Amendment. The lead plaintiff in the case, Cincinnatian Jim Obergefell, and Washington Post investigative reporter Debbie Cenziper have just released a book about the struggle to make same-sex marriage legal.

Jim Obergefell and Debbie Cenziper will be at Joseph Beth Booksellersin Rookwood Commons on Saturday, June 18, at 6 p.m. to discuss their book, "Love Wins."  The previously scheduled event at the Main Public Library has been cancelled.
