Town Hall Seattle says
What happens to people who are found innocent and released after more than a decade of wrongful imprisonment? Award-winning journalist Alison Flowers began to wonder when she discovered that there were little to no support systems in place for people who are exonerated. In Exoneree Diaries: The Fight for Innocence, Independence, and Identity, she presents the stories of four exonerated individuals, sharing intimate details of their experiences. The book is based on Flowers’ yearlong multimedia series with Chicago Public Media—a finalist for a national Online Journalism Award. Flowers reveals the flaws in the legal system that contribute to wrongful convictions and the horrifying lack of support provided for the exonerated after they are released. She shares these profoundly human stories of reclaiming one’s life, overcoming adversity, and searching for purpose.

Flowers will be joined onstage by Ted Bradford, Innocence Project Northwest’s first DNA exoneration in Washington state. Bradford spent nearly 10 years in prison for a rape he did not commit.
