Judy Shepard talked about her book The Meaning of Matthew: My Son’s Murder in Laramie, and a World Transformed (Hudson Street Press; September 3, 2009). In the book she recounts the torture and murder in 1998 of her son Matthew due to his sexual orientation and the subsequent legal work involved in prosecuting her son’s murderers. Judy Shepard is co-founder, with her husband Dennis, of the Matthew Shepard Foundation and is active in promoting social justice, diversity awareness and education, and equality for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people.

First a video was shown of a book talk she gave at the the Salt Lake City Public Library’s Main Library auditorium on September 26, 2009. She answered questions from members of the audience at that event. Then on October 3, 2009, she spoke by video link from Dallas, Texas, responding to telephone calls and electronic communications from viewers who had just seen an airing of the book talk.
