Amanda Knox – Convicted by media, freed by the truth

July 12 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for our kick-off event! After four years in prison and eight years on trial for a murder she didn’t commit, Amanda Knox was definitively acquitted by the Italian supreme court, but
that victory didn’t restore her damaged reputation, and she found herself forever battling a false image of her, her evil doppelganger, “Foxy Knoxy”.

Through her writing, journalism, and public advocacy, Amanda Knox delves deep into these universal topics while also speaking to the specific social crisis highlighted by her harrowing experience – the epidemic of misogyny, controversy hungry tabloid culture, “fake news” and misinformation, and our increasingly elusive sense
of empathy.

There will be some amazing food, including a pig roast, great drinks, and a live band playing through the evening! Pool (heated) will be open so feel free to bring your suits!
