Damien EcholsLife After Death

Damien Echols was convicted of murder and sentenced to death in 1993, only to be found innocent upon appeal and released in 2011. Westword journalist Alan Prendergast joins Damien in conversation in honor of his beautifully written memoir Life After Death, “Damien Echols spent eighteen years on death row for murders he did not commit. Somehow, in the depths of his unspeakable nightmare, he found the courage and strength not only to survive, but to grow, to create, to forgive, and to understand. Life After Death is a brilliant, haunting, painful, and uplifting narrative of a hopeless childhood, a wrongful conviction, a brutal incarceration, and the beginning of a new life.”-John Grisham
