The disturbing case would ultimately attract national attention--including stories in USA Today and on NPR--and supporters including the famed photographer Sally Mann, Katha Pollitt, and the ACLU.
Written by poet Lynn Powell, a neighbor of Cynthia Stewart's, this riveting and beautifully told story plumbs the perfect storm of events and people that threatened an ordinary family in a small American town. Framing Innocence features a determined prosecutor; a fundamentalist Christian anti-porn crusader who is appointed as Cynthia's daughter's guardian; the local attorneys for whom the case would become a crucible; and the many neighbors--friends and strangers, Republican and Democrat-- who come together to fight for sanity and for justice for Cynthia and her family.
