On Thursday, September 15, Nina Burleigh will be the first guest of the Books at the Bar's new season, discussing her just-published, The Fatal Gift of Beauty: The Trials of Amanda Knox.
American college student Amanda Knox thought she would spend a year abroad studying in picturesque Perugia. Instead, she may spend the rest of her life in an Italian prison for the gruesome murder of her roommate. But did she do it? See what Nina has to say as she explores the lurid case in her latest true-crime book and also delves into the realities and myths of Italian life, culture and the criminal justice system.
The program begins at 6pm with a wine and cheese reception for the author and is followed by a book discussion and question and answer session. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing. The evening is free, fun and all are welcome.
