Texas State University is honored to welcome back Anthony Graves for a discussion, Q&A, book sale and signing.

Anthony Graves was wrongfully convicted of multiple homicides in 1992 and spent nearly two decades behind bars, including 12 years on Texas Death Row. His conviction and death sentence were overturned in 2006, and after four years of legal wrangling, he was fully exonerated and released in 2010. Since then, he has become a full-time advocate for criminal justice refo...rm, testifying to the U.S. Senate about the harms of solitary confinement, serving on the board of directors for the Houston Forensic Science Center, and working with the ACLU's Campaign for Smart Justice. He runs the Anthony Graves Foundation, which works to draw attention to problems within the American criminal justice system. He lives in Houston.

His new book, Infinite Hope, was published by Beacon Press in January and will be available for sale at the event. Paid parking will be available at the LBJ Student Center Garage, and student guides will be available there to meet off-campus visitors and direct them to the venue.
