Deanne Miller and Gary Craig
Non-fiction: History/Politics/Current Affairs
September 9, 2021 will mark the 50th anniversary of America’s deadliest prison riot. For years Deanne Quinn Miller fought to uncover the facts of the Attica riot and the circumstances of the murder of her father, a corrections officer who was the first casualty of the uprising. In doing so, she discovered truths that the state for decades tried to hide about its malfeasance. She befriended inmates and corrections officers alike, willing to hear all sides in her quest. Hers is a story of remarkable reconciliation – a story unlike any told about the Attica riot.

Other Information:
A proposal is available; this includes a chapter outline, sample chapter, and an author introduction and testimonial from Heather Thompson, author of the 2016 Pulitzer Price book on Attica, Blood in the Water. In her book, Thompson told only a part of Dee’s story.

Dee’s collaborator is Gary Craig, the distinguished investigative reporter with the Rochester (NY) Democrat and Chronicle. Gary has won national awards for his reporting and writing – including multiple awards for reporting on prison conditions - and more than two dozen state, regional, and national honors.

The authors can deliver a complete ms by Jan. 15, 2021.
Another thing to note is that there are three films in the works about Attica, including one from Showtime, which can only heighten public awareness of this topic as the 50th anniversary approaches.
