Book Group

Posted by Nancy Mullane on July 24th, 2012

Congratulations on your book. Very exciting to hear the buzz about you and all the hard work you put in the last 3 years. I heard your interview on NPR and was so impressed with your poise, eloquence and knowledge on the topic.
My friends had the privelege of attending one of your book launches in the neighborhood and made me intrigued by your book. I have been in a bookclub for 13 years. Last month it was my turn to suggest books for our next read. Your book, Life After Murder, one of our choices and was selected as our next read. It is a very different kind of read for our group.
We would love to invite to be a guest speaker at our next book club meeting at the end of August. The women in the group are dynamic and very well spoken. One is a retired news anchor, lawyer, headhunter, moms, real estate agent, publishing and retail experience.

Life After Murder challenges us to do the unthinkable in the era of mass incarceration – view those accused of heinous crimes as worthy of our care, compassion and concern. Nancy Mullane, a white woman who once was just as ignorant about the real world of crime and punishment as the typical television viewer, takes us on a remarkable journey behind bars and introduces us to five unforgettable men who are struggling to transform their lives. Through their stories we are reminded of the power and possibility of redemption, as well the nearly unforgiveable crime our nation has committed: treating some human beings as disposable.



“Life After Murder is a gripping behind the scenes look at men who have committed heinous crimes yet still challenge our humanity by asking us to truly consider the meaning of redemption. This is journalism at its finest and a must-read for anyone interested in the realities of our prison system.”

–TOM AMMIANO, California Assembly Member
