Two Truths and a Lie: A Virtual Lunch with Ellen McGarrahan and Sarah Gerard

Event Date: April 9, 2021 12:00 pm

In 1990, Ellen McGarrahan was a young reporter for the Miami Herald when she covered the execution of Jesse Tafero, a man convicted of murdering two police officers. When it later emerged that Tafero may have been innocent, McGarrahan was appalled by her unquestioning acceptance of the state’s version of events. The revelation propelled her into a new career as a private investigator. A fascinating glimpse into the mind of a private investigator, “Two Truths and a Lie” is ultimately a deeply personal exploration of one woman’s quest to find answers in a chaotic world. Recorded live April 9, 2021 in partnership with Miami Book Fair.
