Join true crime author Susan Ashline for an interactive community event: conversation and Q&A, followed by a book signing. The crime made headlines around the world: In Chadwicks, Lucas Leonard, 19, was beaten to death by members of a religious cult, including his father, mother, and sister. Nine individuals faced murder-related charges, but only one of them went to trial. When the rest of the defendants accepted plea deals, the evidence files remained buried. Susan Ashline breaks open the files to reveal the story behind the headlines in her book, Without a Prayer: The Death of Lucas Leonard and How One Church Became a Cult. Without a Prayer releases on August 6, by Pegasus Books. Join us for the launch!
