Thank you to all who attended!  Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the Access to Justice and Lawyers Care programs of the Illinois Bar Foundation.

Join award-winning true crime authors GARY V. JOHNSON and JEFFREY DEAN DOTY in a fascinating up close and personal virtual authors’ Q&A, as we discuss their intimate experiences with some of Illinois’ most notorious murder cases.

Gary Johnson, an Aurora-based defense attorney and former Kane County state’s attorney, will discuss his debut book Luck is a Talent, a true crime memoir detailing his career and his experience with the high-profile Jeanine Nicarico case. Jeffrey Dean Doty is a writer who has published fiction and non-fiction works, including A Convenient Man, a true crime novel based on the Maria Ridulph case out of Sycamore, Illinois. In addition to his writing, Jeffrey also co-hosts a true crime podcast, “Speaking of Crime” covering a variety of notable cases.
