Arkansas State University-Mountain Home will host investigative reporter and author, Mara Leveritt, in the second annual Terre Ware Book Author Lecture Series Tuesday night at 7 at the Vada Sheid Community Development Center.
Leveritt is an American investigative reporter best known for her examinations of official conduct regarding serious crimes in Arkansas. Though often categorized as a “true crime” writer, she says, “I’m more interested in what happens when officials mishandle criminal cases, a sub-genre I’ve dubbed ‘crime after crime’.”
Christy Keirn, Associate Vice Chancellor for Marketing and Community Relations and Terre Ware joined KTLO’s Sammy Raycraft of Talk of the Town to discuss the upcoming lecture.
Leveritt has been awarded Arkansas’s prestigious Porter Price, its Booker Worthen Prize (twice), a $10,000 Laman Writer’s Fellowship, and an honorary doctorate of humane letters from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. She is a member of the Arkansas Writers’ Hall of Fame.
The event is free of charge and no tickets are required. For more information, contact Christy Keirn at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 870-508-6109.
