Karen Spears Zacharias teaches at Central Washington University, and she writes thought-provoking books. In the spring of 2012, I reviewed her book “A Silence of Mockingbirds: Memoir of a Murder,” the emotionally jarring story of the torture and murder of Karly, a 3-year old girl in a small Oregon town.
Zacharias still works tirelessly to share that tragic story and to urge others to not only empathize but to act in any way possible on behalf of the many little ones out there like Karly who fall through the cracks of a flawed system. Zacharias has penned several other books of nonfiction and has written for the Huffington Post, New York Times, CNN and National Public Radio.
