Co-Sponsored by Mystery Writers of America & The Innocence Project

San Francisco Public Library (Koret Auditorium) • Free to the Public • Refreshments afterward

This unique book recalls the work of the great muckrakers of the past, as an outraged team of America’s bestselling writers confront the disasters of wrongful convictions. The Anatomy of Innocence is a ground-breaking anthology, in which 14 exonerated inmates narrate their stories to a roster of high-profile mystery and thriller writers. These writers, in turn, have captured the harrowing experiences of these wrongfully convicted individuals.

The panel includes lawyer/writers Laura Caldwell and Leslie S. Klinger, editors of Anatomy of Innocence; Linda Starr, cofounder and legal director of the Northern California Innocence Project; and bestselling crime writer Laurie R. King, a contributor to the project.

Wrongful convictions, long regarded as statistical anomalies in an otherwise sound justice system, now appear with frightening regularity. But few people understand just how or why they happen and, more important, the immeasurable consequences that often haunt the lucky few who are acquitted, years after they are proven innocent.
