The Killing Jar: Based on a True Story


WKU Libraries’ Kentucky Live! talk series featured Dr. Gloria Nixon-John, who talked about her book The Killing Jar: Based on a True Story at Barnes & Noble on the evening of March 20, 2014. The book tells a compelling story of a fifteen-year-old who served nine years on death row in Eddyville, Kentucky. The author, Gloria Nixon-John, provides documentation for the many problems this youngster endured, and how those who misread the signs condemned him to death.
