UPCOMING INTERVIEW: Barbie Latza Nadeau - Journalist for Newsweek, CNN & Author of Angel Face: The True Story of Student Killer Amanda Knox
Barbie Latza Nadeau is an American journalist and the author of Angel Face: The True Story of Student Killer Amanda Knox. Ms. Knox , is the American university exchange student convicted of the murder of her roommate, an English exchange student, Meredith Kercher, by Italian criminal courts in December 2009.
Amanda Knox a fresh-faced honor student from Seattle who met anyone’s definition of an all-American girl—attractive, athletic, smart, hard-working, adventure some, in love with languages and travel is known as Foxy Knoxy, has proclaimed her innocence ahead of her trial for the murder of her British flatmate Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy.
The murder took place in Perugia, Italy, where both girls were studying abroad. The case, with its suggestions of ritual sexual violence, and Knox’s bizarre behavior throughout the investigation and trial transfixed the Italian media.
Barbie Latza Nadeau, a Rome-based Daily Beast senior writer cultivated personal relationships with the key figures in both the prosecution and the defense – describes how the Knox family’s heavy-handed efforts to control media coverage distorted the facts, inflamed an American audience, and painted an offensive, inaccurate picture of Italy’s justice system. An eye-opener for any parent considering sending a child away to study, Angel Face reveals what really went on in this incomprehensible crime.
Barbie Latza Nadeau reports for a variety of publications: Newsweek, The Daily Beast, CNN Traveller Magazine, Delta Sky Magazine, Budget Travel, Frommer's and Globe Pequot Press. She makes frequent broadcast appearances on BBC, NPR, NBC, CBS, FOX and Seattle's ABC affiliate KOMO TV.
