Knox is an exoneree, journalist, and author of The New York Times best-selling memoir “Waiting to Be Heard.” Between 2007 and 2015, Knox spent nearly four years in an Italian prison and eight years on trial for a murder she did not commit. Knox was eventually acquitted of the crime, but the controversy over her case made international headlines for nearly a decade and thrust her into the spotlight, where she was vilified, shamed and harassed.

Knox now works to shed light on the issues of wrongful conviction, truth-seeking and public shaming. Her writings have been published in Marie Claire, USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, The Seattle Times and Seattle Magazine. 

She also hosts the “Labyrinths: Getting Lost with Amanda Knox” podcast. 

The event is free and open to the public.
