Amanda Knox

Writer and Activist Wrongfully Convicted of Murder in Perugia, Italy; Inspiration Behind the Netlflix Documentary "Amanda Knox" and Host of "The Scarlet Letter Reports"

 Amanda Knox Biography

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 VICE/Facebook series about the public vilification of women. She lives in Seattle with her partner, the novelist Christopher Robinson.

Topics
  • Truth Matters

    When 20-year-old Amanda Knox travelled to Perugia, Italy to study abroad in 2007, she looked forward to the year of her life: making friends, eating gelato, and studying Italian. She never dreamed that a month into her stay one of her roommates would be brutally murdered, and that she would be accused and convicted of that terrible crime. During her eight years on trial and four years suffering wrongful imprisonment, it seemed like the truth of her innocence didn't matter. She had every reason to give into rage and despair. But she didn't. This is the story of how she survived and what she learned in the process.

  • Waiting to Be Heard

    In Waiting to Be Heard, Amanda Knox shares the truth about her terrifying ordeal. Drawing from journals she kept and letters she wrote during her incarceration, Amanda gives an unflinching and deeply personal account of her harrowing experience, from the devastation of her friend’s murder to the series of mistakes and misunderstandings that led to her arrest. She speaks intimately about what it was like, at the age of twenty, to find herself imprisoned in a foreign country for a crime she did not commit and demonized by the international media, and about the impact on her family and loved ones as they traveled back and forth to be at her side so that she would not be alone.

Review
  • Windsor's Defense of the Wrongfully Convicted Special Event
    Everything on Friday March 10 went great! The event went off without a hitch and we had a full house. Amanda's talk was wonderful, I have since gotten great feedback on the keynote. Students were glad to have an honest and refreshing take on the way that we treat detainees, those who are wrongfully convicted, and women who go through the system. Students also appreciated that Amanda was not afraid or ashamed of being emotional during the keynote.
