The next occurrence of this event:

In late 2021, Diane Foley sat at a table across from her son's killer, a member of the ISIS group who plead guilty to the kidnapping, torture, and murder of her son seven years before. So begins American Mother — which reads alternately like a thriller, a biography, a mystery, a memoir, and a literary examination of grace. Diane reflects on Jim's childhood, his path to journalism, his courageous reporting from war zones, including his capture, and her own transformation as she advocates for the voices of the wrongfully detained globally. Few journeys are more worthy than this and, in this astonishing book, we are all invited to celebrate the lives of those who are never, in the end, gone.
