Kidnapping Victims Interviewed for Book

FoFmary4_3_edited-1Ariel Castro kidnapping survivors Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus will collaborate with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Mary Jordan on an upcoming book about their experience.

Jordan (pictured, via) will interview Berry and DeJesus to tell their story. Williams & Connolly attorney Robert Barnett will negotiate the deal. At this point in time, no publication date has been scheduled. Here’s more about the book:
