We knew this was going to be a good conversation. Conducted Monday September 23 at KPCC 89.9 FM’s Crawford Family Center facility, the chat featured LA Times film reporter Rebecca Keegan interviewing Samantha Geimer about her new book The Girl.
They were joined at one point by the author’s attorney Lawrence Silver, who shared some expert opinion about Polanski legal dealings. Geimer responded to accusations by Nancy Grace that she was a “weak victim” and urged others who find themselves in the middle of a controversial case like hers to remember they are the masters of their fate:
“You don’t have to submit [to the media]. You don’t have to parade yourself around for show. You’re not entertainment. These people aren’t going to help you. So you don’t have to do it if you don’t want it.”
