Carys Cragg, author of Dead Reckoning: How I Came to Meet the Man Who Murdered My Father, in conversation with Wayde Compton.

Our criminal justice system uses retributive justice—an offense results in a punishment. Restorative justice focuses on relationships, communities, and repairing harm. Join us for a conversation between Carys Cragg, author of the new memoir DEAD RECKONING: HOW I CAME TO MEET THE MAN WHO MURDERED MY FATHER, and author and community advocate Wayde Compton. Cragg will share her experience meeting her father’s killer and what she hopes the future will hold for offenders and victims of crime.

Audience Q and A to follow.

Copies of Dead Reckoning will be available for purchase and signing.
