Amanda Knox is an exoneree, journalist, public speaker, author of theNew York Times best-selling memoir,Waiting to Be Heard, and co-host, with her partner Christopher Robinson, of the podcastLabyrinths. 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. She has since become an advocate for criminal justice reform and media ethics. She sits on the board of theFrederick Douglass Project for Justice.

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".

Every day since, she has fought to reclaim her identity, and to find meaning in those stolen years and unjust incarceration. Now she is sharing the invaluable lessons she's learned by shedding light on the pervasive issues of wrongful conviction, public shaming, and our frequently imperfect methods of seeking truth.

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