Amanda Knox is an exoneree, journalist, speaker, and author of the New York Times best-selling memoir, Waiting to Be Heard (HarperCollins, April 2013). Between 2007 and 2015, she spent nearly four years in an Italian prison and eight years on trial for a murder she didn’t commit. The controversy over Amanda’s case made international headlines for nearly a decade, and thrust her into the spotlight, where she was vilified and shamed. Amanda now works to shed light on the issues of wrongful conviction, truth seeking, and public shaming, and to inspire people towards empathy and perspective. Her journalism has been published in USA Today, the L.A. Times, the Seattle Times, Seattle Magazine,  BROADLY, and the West Seattle Herald. She is currently the host of The Scarlet Letter Reports, a five episode VICE/Facebook webseries about the public vilification of women, scheduled to release in the spring of 2018. She lives in Seattle with her partner, the novelist Christopher Robinson.
