WCI Contributor Diane Fanning at Texas Bookfest

A Woman's Point of View

Just because we're Women in Crime Ink doesn't mean we stay in front of our computers all the time. Far from it. Here's today's point of view from contributor Diane Fanning--and it's not her screen saver:

Where in the world is Diane? She's a featured author at the Best Southwest Bookfest in Texas. Thursday night, Diane participated in a panel entitled "Booked on Crime: Working Together for Justice." Fellow panelists included UT Professor Dr. John W. Stickels of the Innocence Project of Texas . . . Kerry Max Cook, author of Chasing Justice: My Story About Freeing Myself After Two Decades on Death Row . . . and Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins.

The panelists spoke on their work with the wrongfully convicted and what can be done to bring justice to those failed by our system. The motto of the Innocence Project is "Justice is truth in action." We're proud to have one of our contributors participating in that action.

The conference is open to the public. Events through Saturday.
